TCRαβ transgenics show strong functional T cell activation and absence of an enhanced apoptotic program. TCRVαβ transgenic (n = 4) and littermate control (n = 5) mice were primed with PLP56 to 70 on Day 0 (footpad, CFA) and Day 28 (flank, IFA). DLN and splenocytes were harvested at Day 10, Day 28 and Day 32. At the Day 32, CD4+ T cells were analyzed for expression of (A) the pro-survival factor Bclxl by real time PCR (Day 32) and (B) CD127 (Day 28), and (C) CD62L (Day 28) by flow cytometry. Statistical significance between groups was determined using an unpaired t test. Error bars indicate SE.
