Cellular basis of graft versus host tolerance in chimeras prepared with total lymphoid irradiation


BALB/c mice given allogeneic (C57BL/Ka) bone marrow cells after toal lymphoid irradiation become stable chimeras approximately 80% donor-type and 20% host-type cells in the spleen. The chimeras doe not develop graft vs. host disease (GVHD). Purified cells of C57BL/Ka origin from the chimeras mediated GVHD in lightly irradiated C3H (third party), but not in… (More)
