The minimal molecular requirements for elicitation of secondary anti-Sendai virus CTL were investigated. The hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) glycoprotein of Sendai virus and the H-2K(k) glycoprotein of YAC tumor cells were purified and incorporated into phospholipid vesicles. These unilamellar liposomes were then tested for the ability to elicit H-2 restricted secondary anti-Sendai virus CTL. The results indicate that these well-defined vesicles were capable of eliciting secondary anti-Sendai virus CTL which lysed only target cells possessing the H-2K(k) haplotype and modifed with inactivated Sendai virus.
