Ontogeny of T Lymphocytes Studied in Athymic and Foetal Mice
Earlier studies on T lineage lymphocytes in congenitally athymic nude mice (1, 2) have been extended to surgically T deprived mice and early stages of embryogenesis. They permit the further characterisation of a new type of lymphocyte and its implication in T cell ontogeny.
