1

All T lymphocytes have what marker?

CD3 (TCR)

2

All T cells are derived from what?

Thymus

3

Helper T cells have what marker?

CD4

4

CTLs have what marker?

CD8

5

What is the typical percentage of Th and CTLs in blood?

Th - 66%
CTLs - 33%

6

T cells make up what percentage of all lymphocytes in the blood?

70%
B cells comprise the remaining 30%

7

CD8+ T cells are activated where and by what cells?

In the LN and by dendritic cells loaded with Ags exactly as CD4+ T cells are.

8

What do CTLs recognize?

Class I MHC-associated peptides

9

Once CTLs are activated, what follows?

They proliferate and leave the LN

10

CD8+ T cells are activated by mechanisms that involves what?

Cross-presentation of antigens to CD8+ T cells

11

Cells infected with intracellular microbes, such as viruses, are ingested by what?

DCs

12

CD8+ T cells are class ___ MHC- restricted

I

13

Naive CD8+ T cells recognize what?

Peptide Ags presented by DCs in the lymph nodes

14

CD*+ T cells are stimulated to do what?

Proliferate and differentiate into CTLs (and memory cells)

15

Once CTLs are activated the enter what?

The circulation and migrate to the site of Ag

16

CD8+ CTLs recognize the Ag at the site of Ag in the tissues and respond how?

By killing the target cells where the Ag is produced

17

The naive CD8+ T cells, like all naive T cells, are activated by what?

Ags presented by DCs

18

Ags recognized by CD8+ T cells may be from what?

Viruses or tumors derived from a variety of cell types

19

The process of cross-presentation is critically important for what?

Ag presentation by professional APCs within class I MHC

20

Exogenous Ags derived from ingested infected cells, tumor cells, or their proteins are transferred into the cytosol for processing, loading and presentation on what?

Class I MHC molecules

21

What is the first signal for the activation of naive CD8+ cell?

Recognition of Ags

22

What is the second signal for the proliferation and differentiation of CD8+ cells into effector CTLs?

CD28-CD80 costimulation

23

Activated CTLs contain numerous amounts of what?

Granules called lysosomes

24

What do granules contain?

Perforin and granzymes used by the cells to kill other cells

25

What do activated CTLs secrete?

Cytokines, mostly IFN-γ, that potently activate macrophages

26

Similar to the activation of Th1 cells, the molecular events in CTL differentiation involve what TF?

T-bet

27

What does T-bet regulate?

Transcription of genes encoding perforin, granzymes, and IFN-γ

28

What provides signal 3 in the form of cytokines which enhance activation of CTLs?

CD4+ helper T cells

29

Of particular importance, CD4+ helper T cells are required for CD8+ T cells responses when?

Relatively weak innate immune reactions are evoked by laten viral infections, organ transplants, and tumors

30

Evidence suggests that CD4+ helper T cells are more important for the generation of what ?

CD8+ memory T cells than for the differentiation of naive CD8+ T cells into effector CTLs
