Post-mortem HLA tissue typing of retinal pigment epithelial cells.


Retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) were derived from bulbi of cornea donors and maintained in culture. The time-span between donor's death and cell cultivation ranged from 2 to 122 h. The mean numbers of hours was 25.6 (n = 130). After IFN-gamma stimulation, cells were serologically typed for class I and class II antigens. Unclear class I… (More)
