A specific antiserum was raised in rabbits against thymocytes from snakes, Spalerosophis diadema, and was absorbed repeatedly with snake erythrocytes and kidney cells. In complement-dependent cytotoxicity assays, the absorbed anti-thymocyte serum (ATS) was, at any given dilution, cytotoxic to Sp. diadema thymocytes > peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) > spleen cells and could be titrated to a plateau defining a population of about 98% of thymocytes, 80% of PBL and 72% of spleen cells.
