In the present study, we have investigated the molecular basis for immunoregulatory function of CD8 cells after autologous mixed lymphocyte reaction (AMLR) activation. We demonstrated that the CD8+CD45R+ but not the CD8+CD45R- subset of cells was a subpopulation, with the majority of suppressor activity after AMLR activation. In contrast, cytotoxic activity against alloantigens resided in both the CD8+CD45R+ and CD8+CD45R- subsets of cells. Importantly, the treatment of AMLR-activated CD8 cells with anti-CD45R antibody or anti-CD3 antibody abolished the suppressor function of these cells, which contrasts with earlier studies showing that treatment of AMLR activated CD4 suppressor inducer cells could be blocked with anti-CD45R but not with anti-CD3 antibody. The results suggest that the CD45R antigen as well as the CD3-T cell receptor (TCR) complex have an important role in the suppressor function of AMLR-activated cells.
