A T4+ proliferative, noncytotoxic cloned line acquires specific lytic function by treatment with recombinant interferon alpha or gamma. Simultaneous with the acquisition of this new cell function, a rearrangement of the T-cell receptor alpha gene occurs. These changes necessitate a revised concept of a T-cell clone regarding its T-cell receptor gene configuration and cell function.
