We have investigated the minimal molecular requirements for elicitation of anti-Sendai virus cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL), and the minimal molecular requirements for the recognition and lysis processes associated with anti-Sendai virus CTL-target cell interactions. This report demonstrates a) that the hemagglutinin-neuraminidase and/or fusion glycoproteins of Sendai virus can elicit anti-Sendai virus CTL and b) that these glycoproteins and H-2 antigens must be within the same membrane lipid bilayer for effective elicitation of anti-Sendai-virus CTL and for effective recognition and lysis of target cells by anti-Sendai virus CTL.
