Abstract

Ag receptor stimulation of preactivated T cells causes rapid cell death in an IL-2- and Fas-dependent manner. This phenomenon, known as activation-induced cell death (AICD), plays a pivotal role in the removal of Ag-reactive T cells after initial expansion. In this study, we report a novel form of T cell apoptosis that is distinct from classic AICD. When peripheral T cells were activated with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 Abs precoated onto plastic plates, CD4+CD25- and CD8 T cells initially expanded but underwent massive apoptosis after 4 d. Unlike classic AICD, this type of T cell apoptosis pathway requires engagement of CD28 and expression of p53, a tumor-suppressor gene. The most striking feature of this form of apoptosis was regulatory T cell resistance. Under the same stimulating conditions, CD4+CD25 + T cells grew continuously beyond 4 d. Consequently, when the entire CD4 population was cultured with plate-bound anti-CD3 plus anti-CD28 Ab, CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ regulatory T cells outgrew nonregulatory T cells and expanded >7000-fold after 11 d. The data presented herein demonstrate a novel process of Ag-induced T cell death by sustained TCR and CD28 engagement and represent a simple and efficient procedure for the expansion of regulatory T cells in vitro.
