  • The ability to mount an immune response against foreign antigens and to regulate this response at the cellular level is an important characteristic of metazoans. This ability is mediated by cell-surface recognition systems that allow the distinction between self and nonself. A major histocom-patibilty complex which encodes such molecules was first defined in mice through the discovery of a genetic control of graft rejection, and is now known to exist in all vertebrates examined. In man it is… CONTINUE READING
