To determine whether the human thymus provides an environment for the maturation of murine T cells, human fetal thymus and liver (hu-thy/liv) were implanted into congenitally athymic NIH-beige-nude-xid (BNX) mice or C.B-17 scid/scid (SCID) mice. 3 mo after implantation, in contrast to the hu-thy/liv implant in SCID mice, which was populated only with human(More)

Temporal changes in the form and distribution of surface projections were found to be correlated with migratory phases of PGCs. Non-migrating PGCs were spherical to ovoid with relatively smooth surfaces. Their transition to the migratory phase was first(More)
