ISOLATION OF CELLS FROM SPLEEN, THYMUS, AND LYMPH NODES 1 PURPOSE The purpose of this Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to outline procedures forisolating and cryopreserving cells from spleen, thymus, and lymph nodes. 2 SCOPE This SOP will be applied to fresh tissue processed for cell isolation. 3 RESPONSIBILITIES

As tumor-associated antigens appear all to be expressed in the thymus [24], the T cell repertoire is similarly deprived of high affinity tumor-antigen reactive T cells, as it is the case for any self-antigen. Therefore, T cells that will. survive Low affinity. Negative selection. High affinity threshold. T cells that become. deleted. REACTIVITY

In the mouse, precursors of antibody-forming cells interact with thymus-de-rived, antigen-reactive cells (ARC) to proliferate and differentiate into hemol-ysin-producers (1, 2).

ANTIGEN-INDUCED DEATH OF T-LYMPHOCYTES

Immature precursor cells lacking CD3/TCR enter the thymus. During intrathymic development, TCR gene rearrangement takes place, and cell surface-expressed heterodimeric TCRs are randomly generated. The vast majority (> 95 %) of developing thymocytes do not leave the thymus, and die by apoptosis. Only a minority of thymocytes is rescued

Identify the cells in thymus that express peripheral tumor antigen to induce clonal deletion of tumor antigen reactive T cells. (2). Examine whether anti-B7 antibody treatment in TRAMP mice can rescue the tumor-antigen specific T cells that are otherwise deleted. (3).

Hormonal control of T-cell development in health and disease

Once formed in the thymus, mature T cells migrate to peripheral lymphoid organs to initiate the cell- mediated immune response. Importantly, hormones can control thymus physiology, including T -cell devel - opment, and the thymus itself can also affect endocrine axes1. Investigations in the 1970s and 1980s showed

In the NOD mouse, many islet-reactive T cells invading the islet are insulin specific (7, 8), and, most importantly, insulin-reac-tive T cells are capable of adoptively transferring diabetes in NOD mice (7, 9). These cells appear to recognize insulin B chain in the region of peptide 9 23 (9, 10). Interestingly, insulin B chain 9 23

In recent years however, demonstrative evidence was provided that the adult thymus remains active until late in life and generates competent naive T cells for ensuring a diverse peripheral repertoire [1,4,10].

Thymus and bursa Fabricii are both lymphoepithelial organs in the sense that they represent an intimate relationship between epithelial or epithelial-derived cells and lymphocytes. Lymphocytes in both organs are characterized by rapid proliferation. It has been shown (2, 3) that thymus and bursal lymphocytes are at least partly derived from

In addition to the negative selection of self-reactive thymocytes, the thymus produces naturally occurring regulatory T cells (nT reg cells) that are essential for the establishment of self-tolerance (Sakaguchi et al., 2008). It has been suggested that mTECs (Aschenbrenner
