Abstract: The results in the present study demonstrate that (i) adhesion of lymphocytes to HCE cells could be mediated by the LFA-1-ICAM-1 pathway and/or the CD2-LFA-3 pathway; (ii) the LFA-1-ICAM-1 pathway could be crucial in lymphocyte adhesion to HCE cells; (iii) IFN-gamma or TNF-alpha exerts an enhancing effect not only on the ICAM-1 expression on HCE cells but also on the adhesion of lymphocytes to HCE cells.
