The serology and genetics of 17 serologically defined tissue antigens of chimpanzees is described. Analysis of their distribution in 200 unrelated chimpanzees and their segregation in a large number of chimp families suggests that 14 of the antigens are controlled by two closely linked loci: seven by the A and seven by the B locus of ChLA. Typing of(More)
Interest in the Ir genes of rheus monkeys stems from their phylogenetic relationship to man and the extensive data already available on the major histocompatibility complex of the monkey. At least two independent dominant H-linked Ir genes have been identified in the rhesus. These genes control the ability of monkeys to respond to the random linear(More)
Five new serologically defined (SD) tissue antigens of rhesus monkeys are described. Results of a population study and a segregation analysis in families were consistent with their control by the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), as alleles of the two previously established SD loci of RhL--A. The number of identifiable SD specificities of the rhesus(More)
A prospective study has been carried out in rhesus monkeys to investigate the influence of blood-transfusions on kidney allograft survival. Unrelated animals matched for 2 or 3 antigens of the A and B locus of the major histocompatibility complex were given five consecutive blood-transfusions before transplantation and received conventional(More)
