Genetic Control of Interaction Between Class I and Class II Antigens in Murine Islet Rejection
Successfully implanted islets of Langerhans between two H-2 disparate strains are rejected following injection of cells bearing class I antigens syngeneic to the graft, together with either syngeneic or allogeneic class II antigens. Such rejection does not occur if class II syngeneic to the graft, but class I antigens are not.
