Further analysis of the T-cell subsets and pathways of murine cardiac allograft rejection.

Abstract

The present study examined the role of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in cardiac allograft rejection when either the direct or indirect pathway was eliminated for the CD4+ portion of the response. To study the pathways in vivo, we used genetically altered mouse strains that lack class II antigens as either the donors or recipients for cardiac transplantation. In… (More)
