Abstract:

Groups of F1 hybrid mice A x B were sublethally irradiated and injected with cells from various lymphoid tissues of adult parental strain A mice. Spleen and lymph node cells and cells from the thymus of the survivors were then injected into an F1 hybrid of another type A x C. A significant number of deaths occurred among the secondary hosts only when they had received spleen cells from mice which had been injected with adult bone-marrow cells. Author
