Suppressor T cells in allogeneic bone marrow chimeras.

Immunosuppression is believed to play a role in the maintenance of stable bone marrow (BM) chimeras. This study investigates the nature and specificity of the suppression that lymphocytes from allogeneic BM chimeras exert upon the alloreactivity of donor and recipient lymphocytes. Lethally irradiated CBA/J (H-2k) mice were infused with 10(7) unseparated… (More)
