Abstract Synchronized interleukin-2 receptor-positive T cells, homogeneous immunoaffinity-purified interleukin-2, and a monoclonal antibody to interleukin-2 receptors were used to show that only three factors are critical for T-cell cycle progression: interleukin-2 concentration, interleukin-2 receptor density, and the duration of the interleukin-2 receptor interaction. Since the proliferative characteristics of T cells are identical to those of both prokaryotic and all other eukaryotic cells, these findings provide a new model that accounts fully for the variables that determine cell cycle progression.
