The histogenesis of the rat adrenal cortex: a study based on histologic analysis of mosaic pattern in chimeras.

A series of chimeric rats was used to investigate the histogenesis of the adrenal cortex. These animals were produced by amalgamating preimplantation embryos of two congenic strains which express different alloantigens of the major histocompatibility system. The manner in which cells assort themselves during embryogenesis and organ renewal is amenable to… (More)
