Protocol Id: 2845
T cells are activated by signaling through ITAM (immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motif)-containing CD3 signaling chains that associate with the T cell receptor (1). Co-stimulation through CD28 on T cells provides an additional signal required for effective T cell activation (2). Antibody-based binding and aggregation of CD3 and CD28 proteins simulates the engagement of a T cell with an antigen presenting cell, and results in T cell activation.
