Alloantisera were prepared by reciprocal immunizations with bursal or thymic lymphoid cells between chickens of two inbred lines identical at theB major histocompatibility locus. In cytotoxic assays, antibursa sera were specific for donor-line bursa cells without absorption; antithymus sera were similarly specific for donor-line thymus cells. Both types of sera cytolyzed some peripheral lymphoid cells from spleen, bone marrow, and blood. Absorption of either type of serum with peripheral blood… CONTINUE READING
