It has been previously shown that P815 (H-2d) purified plasma membranes can induce cytolytic activity from primed C57BL/6 (H-2b) spleen cells. The secondary cytolytic T lymphocyte (CTL) inducing activity is retained when these P815 plasma membranes are solubilized in deoxycholate. Evidence is now presented that the cell surface antigens responsible for CTL induction can be partially purified in active form and these antigens can be incorporated into reconstituted membranes and phospholipid vesicles. The active antigens have the properties expected for H-2 molecules on lentil lectin chromatography and gel filtration.
