To study the function of the proto-oncogene c-fos in hematopoietic tissues, transgenic mice were generated that express c-fos from the H2-Kb promoter in several organs. These H2-c-fos mice have enlarged spleens and hyperplastic thymuses containing an increased number of thymic epithelial cells. The exogenous c-fos expression specifically affects T cell development in the thymus, thereby increasing the fraction of mature thymocytes. Results obtained with bone marrow radiation chimeras suggest… CONTINUE READING
