A method for the detection of bovine T-lymphocytes involves rosette formation between lymphocytes and sheep erythrocytes treated with both 2-aminoethylisothiouronium bromide (AET) and dextran. The method detects approximately 70% of peripheral blood leukocytes as rosette-forming cells. Evidence that the rosette-forming cells are T-lymphocytes is also presented.
