Simple and rapid procedures have been developed to isolate T6-positive cells in epidermal cell suspensions, in peripheral blood of adult, and in cord blood. The isolated T6-positive cells were tested by double immunogold labelling at ultrastructural level to analize their phenotype (T6/HLA-DR antigens) and their morphological features in order to understand their origin, their fate, and their relationship to a) the early precursors of dentritic cells, b) immature neonatal lymphoid subsets, and c) immature macrophagic leukocytes. © 1986.
