Inhibitory effect of the bovine conceptus on lymphocyte stimulation.

Experiments were conducted to determine whether the preimplantation bovine conceptus produces an immunosuppressant as measured by the inhibition of lectin-induced incorporation of thymidine into lymphocytes. The results of the experiments clearly indicated that media from cultured 18-d-old embryos inhibited lectin-induced incorporation of thymidine into… CONTINUE READING
