Abstract


The investigation of cellular interactions during the regeneration of splenic transplants depends upon distinguishing host cells from graft derived cells. As a cell marker which, in contrast to many other marker systems, does not affect histocompatibility, the non-expressed transgene mMT-HGHRH-1 was introduced by mating into NMRI inbred mice to generate the transgenic mouse line BSM. By transplanting non-transgenic NMRI splenic tissue into transgenic BSM hosts, host derived cells could be identified in the transplants by in situ hybridization after regeneration. In a reciprocal approach, implant derived cells were detected in a transgenic transplant after 3 weeks of regeneration in a non-transgenic host. Relative amounts of transgenic cells in transplant cross-sections were estimated from the signal intensity of autoradiographs by densitometry and computer analysis. This approach could be broadly applied in studies of transplantation systems.
