We have described a cloned dendritic cell, Clone Den-1, which is a potent accessory cell for some T-dependent immune responses. Clone Den-1 activates T cells in both autologous and allogeneic mixed lymphocyte reactions, but cannot present soluble antigen to T cells that co-recognize nominal antigen plus I-Ab gene products. In addition, Clone Den-1 or factors produced by it can reconstitute plaque-forming cell responses by accessory cell-depleted B plus T cells to the T-dependent antigen sheep red blood cells. The relationship of this clone to heterogeneous populations of dendritic cells and other accessory cells is discussed.
