To generate a cellular tool to study the defects of this T cell subset in vitro, we have used Herpesvirus saimiri, a lymphotropic virus that transforms human T lymphocytes into extended growth and in addition, endows them with natural killer (NK) features. Transformed CHS CD8+ T cells were generated and characterized in comparison with healthy controls. The results showed that transformed CHS T cells maintained the defects described in primary CHS lymphocytes, such as giant secretory lysosomes and impaired NK and T cell receptor/CD3-induced, perforin-mediated cytolytic activity [which, however, could be restored after extended culture in the presence of interleukin-2 (IL-2)]. Upon activation with phorbol ester plus calcium ionophore or upon extended culture with IL-2, transformed CHS T cells showed normal, perforin-independent plasma membrane CD178/CD95L/FasL-mediated cytolytic activity but negligible secretion of microvesicle-bound CD95L. Transformed (and primary) CHS T cells were otherwise normal for cytolysis-independent activation functions, such as proliferation, surface expression of several activation markers including major histocompatibility complex class II, and cytokine or surface activation-marker induction. Therefore, the CHS protein [CHS1/LYST (for lysosomal traffic regulator)] can be dispensable for certain NK and T cell cytolytic activities of activated CHS CD8+ T lymphocytes, but it seems to be required for microvesicle secretion of CD95L. We conclude that transformed CHS T cells may be useful as a tool to study in vitro the relative role of CHS1/LYST in NK and T lymphocyte cytolysis and antigen presentation.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48641||ISSN:||0741-5400||DOI:||10.1189/jlb.0904500||Source:||Journal of Leukocyte Biology[ISSN 0741-5400],v. 77, p. 661-668 (Mayo 2005)|
