Lymphocytes can be separated by electrophoresis into cells of high and of low electrophoretic mobility. Cells of high mobility are T cells and those of low mobility are B cells, with distinct immunological functions. Biophysical and biochemical studies on physically isolated and immunologically defined T and B cells in CBA mice showed striking differences in the chemical composition of the surface membranes.
