Injecting AI] mice with TsFl, in the absence of tumor antigen, induced in the mice a second order of suppressor T cells, designated Ts2 (235). Spleen cells of mice injected with TsFl suppressed the immunological rejection of S1509a cells 38 David Naor and Jonathan S. Duke-Cohan in the tumor-immunized mice. Ts2 cells lost their activity after treatment with anti Thy-I and complement, indicating that they are T cells (235). Ts2, in a manner similar to Ts1 (234) and TsF1 (235), exerts a specific suppressive effect, suppressing the rejection of S1509a tumor but not the rejection of Sal (6).

140). It was further found by these latter authors that responder T cells, obtained from TBH (BALB/c mice bearing MCA tumor), were less susceptible to suppression by PG than their normal counterparts. Exposure of the macrophages to indomethacin or eicosatetra-enoic acid, I. Suppressor Cells and Malignancy 25 both PG synthetase inhibitors, markedly reduced their ability to produce a suppressive factor that inhibits the MLC reaction. Because the addition of indomethacin to macrophages reduced the level of PG synthesis, the implication is that the suppressive factor may be PG.

Il "0 "0 24 David Naor and Jonathan S. Duke-Cohan Tu5. The effect, however, of the suppressor macrophages on unrelated immunological responses was not tested in this study (108). In the second study, it was found that the anti-MOPC cytotoxic response of normal spleen cells, sensitized in vitro with MOPC-315, was efficiently suppressed by syngeneic macrophages derived from MOPC-315-bearing mice (112). Because the suppressor macrophages of MOPC-315 TBH failed to inhibit efficiently the anti-EU cytotoxic response of normal splenocytes, the authors concluded that the suppressor cells were specific.
