 Hello there,

PHA is a lectin, means it binds to some sugar residues. Most probably it
binds some sugar residues attached to certain molecules on T cells and it
cross links those molecules. This transduces activation signals to T cells.
The important point is that presence of antigen presenting cells is
important.

This is as for as I know. Good luck
