Primary cultures derived from neonatal rat forebrain grow almost entirely as glial cultures, with a large astrocytic preponderance and smaller numbers of oligodendrocytic cells. Although both astrocytic and oligodendrocytic characteristics are acquired in vitro, the origins of both types of glia in primary cultures have not been determined. We tested the(More)
Most patients requiring allogeneic bone marrow transplant (allo-BMT) do not have an HLA-matched sibling donor. A phenotypically matched unrelated donor graft has been made available for approximately 50% of Caucasians and less than 10% of ethnic and racial minorities in need. However, almost all patients have a readily available partially mismatched related(More)
Single amino acid substitutions at nine different positions on the H-2Kb molecules from in vitro-mutagenized, immunologically altered, somatic cell variants were correlated with their patterns of recognition by monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) and allogeneic cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) clones. While MAbs were found to detect spatially discrete, domain-specific(More)
The antigenic composition of the human corneal endothelium, a cellular layer essential for maintaining corneal function, has not been well characterized. A novel corneal endothelial antigen was identified by generating a monoclonal antibody (MAb) against normal human corneal endothelial cells. This MAb, designated 2B4.14.1, reacted strongly by(More)
