Abstract: The effects of chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) on the expression of the hTERT gene in combination with the conversion of the phenotype of naive T-cells and T-cells of immune memory in vitro were studied. hCG inhibited expression of hTERT mRNA in naive T-cells (CD45RA+) and immune memory T cells (CD45RO+), causing a decrease in the replicative potential of the cells. The presence of hCG in the culture led to the conversion of the phenotype of T-lymphocytes. hCG reduced the number of proliferating T-cells of immune memory, estimated by phenotypic signs by differential gating. hCG (10 IU/ml and 100 IU/ml) inhibited expression of CD25 by the studied populations, but did not modulate expression of the CD71 proliferation marker. Thus, hCG inhibited the functional activity of naive T-cells and T-cells of immune memory, which, in the context of pregnancy, can contribute to the formation of immune tolerance to the semi-allogenic fetus.
