The specific antigen-binding cell populations of individual fetal mouse spleens: repertoire composition, size, and genetic control

In order to analyze the genetic and physiological basis of controls affecting the generation of the repertoire of antigen-binding cells in fetal mice, we have measured the numbers of spleen cells specific for each of four antigens as a function of the total numbers of nucleated and Ig-bearing cells in inbred, hybrid, and random bred fetuses. For each of the… CONTINUE READING
