28]. CHS to oxazolone was blocked in NKT cell-deficient CD1d–/– or T-cell receptor (TCR) J␣28–/– mice or upon administration of non-activating CD1d-binding ligands for the invariant TCR of i NKT cells. New data now have revealed a role for activated i NKT cells in promoting DC migration. Thus, injection of ␣-GalCer, a CD1d ligand recognized by i NKT cells, at the time of DNFB sensitization resulted in an increased CHS response . An interesting finding was reported for the rather Th2-dependent CHS to FITC .
