  • Normal mouse blood-forming tissue contains a class of cells which, on being transplanted into heavily irradiated mice, can proliferate and form macroscopic colonies in the spleen. Often, within a given colony, the cells which are observed indicate that differentiation is occurring along three lines, into cells of the erythrocytic, granulocytic and megakaryocytic series, respectively. Unique radiation-induced marker chromosomes were used to obtain direct cytological evidence that the spleen… CONTINUE READING
