The human thymic microenvironment. Phenotypic characterization of Hassall's bodies with the use of monoclonal antibodies.

Abstract

The human thymic microenvironment is important in promotion of T cell maturation, particularly during early stages of thymic ontogeny. Hassall's bodies (HB) are epithelial swirls in the human thymic medulla that are thought to be derived from endocrine medullary thymic epithelium. To study the ontogeny and function of various components of the human thymic… (More)
