Chronic Skin Allograft Rejection in Terrestrial Slugs
Abstract To know whether or not molluscs are capable of recognizing tissue alloantigens, dorsal skin-allografts were exchanged between adult terrestrial slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi. We succeeded forExpand

Perforin-Dependent Cell Death in Skin Allograft Rejection of the Terrestrial Slug Incilaria fruhstorferi
Abstract The rejection of allografts in mammals is mainly mediated by cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, whereas no comparable immunoreactive cells have been described in invertebrates. The present study wasExpand
