In previous reports we described our approach to the cultivation of murine and human thymic epithelial cells in primary cultures, using defined, serum-free growth factor-supplemented medium and extracellular matrix-coated culture plates. The cells in these cultures displayed high metabolic activity and their supernatant was highly active on thymocytes. In… CONTINUE READING
