The interactions of phytohemagglutinin (PHA) with normal human lymphocytes were studied utilizing radioiodinated leukoagglutinin (“$I-LPHA) over a concentration spectrum encompassing the entire range of lymphocyte metbinding was temperature-, pH-, abolic responses. “jI-LPHA and time-dependent. Ligand association was rapid

Lymphocyte suspensions, virtually free of phagocytes, platelets, and red cells, were obtained by a modified Ficoll-Hypaque gradient centrifugation technique as previously described (2). PHA Purification - Leukoagglutinin (LPHA) was prepared from PHA-P (Difco. Batch No. 577755) according to a modification of the method of Weber et al. (20). Briefly, PHA-P was layered over a sulfoethyl (SE)-Sephadex C-50 (Pharmacia) column equilibrated with I/X M KH,PO,, pH 4.5. After elution of the initial peak with the starting buffer, the LPHA containing second peak was eluted with ‘115 M KH,PO,, Na,HPO,, pH 6.0. This peak was further purified by gel filtration on Sephadex G-200 (Pharmacia), dialyzed against 0.9% NaCl, rechromatographed on SE-Sephadex C-50 (Pharmacia), and concentrated by pressure ultracentrifugation and lyophylized. The LPHA so obtained was found to be homogenous by the criteria of chromatography on SE-Sephadex C-50, e&lusion chromatography on G-200 and by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. It is known to be completely devoid of erythroagglutinating activity (EPHA) (20). lodination of LPHA - LPHA was iodinated (with reductant-free ‘9; specific activity, 17 Ci/mmol, ICN, or with Y), by the chloramine-T method of Hunter (21) preceding each experiment.
