Correlation of erythrocytic peripheral blood chimaerism and putative bone marrow precursors bearing erythroid differentiation (B-G) antigens using monoclonal antibodies immobilized on fluorescent latex spheres.


The degree of erythroid chimaerism from chickens made chimaeric following stem cell infusion as embryos has been determined using a sensitive and simple procedure with monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) specific for erythroid differentiation (B-G) antigens. Highly labelled fluorescent latex beads coupled to specific MAbs have allowed for the detection of very low… (More)
