The rat T-cell differentiation marker RT6.1 is more polymorphic than its alloantigenic counterpart RT6.2.


Utilizing allotype-specific antibodies to immunoprecipitate RT6.2 from DA.6B rat lymphocyte lysates, we have shown this antigen recently to be composed of two related, non-glycosylated polypeptides with apparent molecular weights (MW) of 24,000 and 26,000 (reducing conditions), which evidently are anchored in the cell membrane by covalent linkage to… (More)
