The objectives of this thesis work involved the identification and characterization of rat lymphocyte surface components involved in mitogenic stimulation by the oxidative agents periodate and neuraminidase plus galactose oxidase (NGO). Lymph node cell blastogenesis induced by these oxidative agents was inhibited by reduction with borohydride or reaction with cysteine methyl ester (CME) without affecting the ability of lymph node cells (LNC) to respond to concanavalin A (Con A).
