To determine the optimal dose of gamma radiation necessary to inhibit T-lymphocyte function and prevent transfusion-acquired graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD), a donor plateletpheresis component was initially divided into ten 20-mL samples. One sample was not irradiated, while the other nine samples were treated with gamma radiation at doses ranging from(More)
A limitation of solid-phase human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibody assays is the falsely low/negative result of samples with high-titer antibodies, a phenomenon known as the prozone effect. Here we compared the efficacy of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and dithiothreitol (DTT) treatment of serum samples in overcoming the prozone effect. A total of(More)
The roles of inversion and crossover recombination in determining the spacing between two functionally linked genes on an individual strand of DNA and the resulting genetic organization throughout the population is not well understood. We employ a computer simulation to look at the spacing between functionally linked genes after many generations of a(More)
A new high-frequency antigen related to the Kell system was defined by the serum of a patient, Mrs. Sub. The antigen was lacking from her cells and those of one of her three siblings. All random cells tested were incompatible with her serum as were bloods of other various "null" phenotypes, but Ko bloods were compatible suggesting that the antibody,(More)
