Anti-CD3 for Macaque nemestrina T-cell activation

I am trying to study CTL to SIV and HIV in pig-tail macaques (Macaque 
nemestrina).  I would like to develop CTL lines by non-specific 
activation with anti-CD3 similar to what has been done in HIV infected 
humans.  However, OKT3 doesn't seem to work particularly well on macaque 
cells.  Does anyone have a monoclonal that works to acitvate macaque cells?
