  • Summary Experiments were undertaken to determine whether histocompatibility antigens were detectable on spermatozoa and whether it might be possible to differentiate spermatozoa bearing X and Y chromosomes by means of the fluorescent antibody technique. C57BL/6 female mice were immunized with skin grafts and lymphoid cells from C57BL/6 males in an attempt to produce antibody specific for Y-determined antigen(s). Despite accelerated second-set rejection of male skin grafts, it was not possible… CONTINUE READING
