The localization of the three best-defined thymic hormones, namely, thymulin, thymopoietin and thymosin alpha 1 was studied by immunofluorescence using antibodies directed against these three molecules. With both human thymus frozen sections and cultured cells, thymic hormones were found exclusively in the epithelial component (recognized by its keratin content), in normal as well as pathological thymuses. The double-labeling experiments using the different anti-thymic hormone antibodies showed… CONTINUE READING
