Abstract

An attempt was made to investigate the possible existence of differences in the composition of peripheral blood lymphocytes between males and females. Using affinity chromatography of human peripheral mononuclear cells on insolubilized histamine together with staining by fluoresceinated histamine-rabbit serum albumin (HRSA) we revealed that males posses a significantly higher proportion of mononuclear cells which bind to HRSA. These results are also reflected in sex-related differences in proliferative responses of the HRSA-non-adherent mononuclear cell population to T cell-dependent mitogens antigens and allogeneic mononuclear cells.
