Mice were sensitized with fluorescein isothiocyanate after UVB treatment. The T cells cloned from these mice were phenotypically analyzed as CD4+, CD8–, TCR-α/β+, MHC-restricted T cells specific for the fluorescein isothiocyanate antigen. They secreted IL-10 but not IL-4 or interferon-γ, whereas cells from nonirradiated control animals produced high amounts of interferon-γ and little IL-4 and IL-10 (Shreedhar et al. 1998b). The cytokine pattern Photoimmunology 25 of the UVB-induced cells was related but not identical to that of T regulatory 1 cells; thus, the authors designated these cells as T regulatory 2-type cells.
