A comparison of the ability of normal peritoneal cells (PC) and those harvested from mice 1–3 days after intraperitoneal immunization with live Salmonella enteritidis 11RX (11RX) to present antigen to 11RX‐primed T cells was made using formalin‐killed 11RX and a soluble 11RX antigen extract as antigens. Unfractionated PC and the adherent and non‐adherent PC populations were analysed separately and the effects of the lysosomal function‐impairing drug chloroquine and the fixative paraformaldehyde, used before or after antigen‐pulsing, were also determined. The results presented indicate that immunization with live 11RX did not induce any detectable modulation of APC function which could account for the ability of live 11RX to induce cell‐mediated immune responses involving Lyt 2+ T cells.
