Leukocyte Antigens in Chickens

  • D. O. Schmid
  • P. Thein


Specific antileukocyte sera have been obtained by immunization of chickens with spleen, bone marrow and blood from other chickens. Methods of immunization, isolation of leukocytes, preparation of antisera and detection of antibodies are described. By means of these specific antileukocyte reagents we succeeded in detecting specific leukocyte antigens.
