In keeping with previous reports, these results lead us to consider that recruitment of [gamma]c to IL-7/IL-7R[alpha] which occurs in sequential dimerization model would be impossible in 4[degrees]C and sodium azide medium, suggesting that the epitope masking may result from conformational changes of surface [gamma]c protein with preassembled heterodimer model [12, 13, 19].
