Radioresistant cells of thymus--producers and targets of thymocyte growth factor and their possible role in postradiation restoration of thymus.

Abstract

In the present study the association between the damaging and the stimulating action of radiation on the cells of thymus (in particular intrathymic T-lymphocyte precursors, TLP) is analyzed. The radioresistance and possibility to secrete humoral products, in particular, the thymocytes growth factor, THGF, is assessed. The possible role of THGF in the… (More)
