A major component of the thymic microenvironment is a network of thymic epithelial cells (TEC) which are able to express class II major histocompatibility complex products and to secrete thymic hormones. In the present investigation, we used a panel of anti-cytokeratin (CK) antibodies to establish distinct cytokeratin-defined TEC subsets. Four… CONTINUE READING
