We describe a system for growing murine colonies containing subsets of functional T cells derived from immature T cell precursors. In contrast with previously described systems in which colony formation appears to depend upon activation and clonal expansion of mature T cells, we obtain comparable or increased numbers of colonies after depletion of T cells… CONTINUE READING
