Abstract:

Lethally irradiated mice were injected with various numbers of normal spleen cells, and then immunized with sheep erythrocytes. In their spleens, antibody appeared in localized areas whose number corresponded to the number of spleen cells injected. When sheep and pig erythrocytes were injected simultaneously, antibody against each was found in separate areas. From these findings it is postulated that single precursor cells are responsible for the areas of antibody, and that the progeny of each is restricted to forming a single antibody. Author
