Notes
Transgenic mice express the mouse alpha-chain and beta-chain T-cell receptor that pairs with the CD4 coreceptor and is specific for chicken ovalbumin 323-339 in the context of I-A b. Homozygous transgenic mice are viable and fertile. In these mice there is a four-fold increase in the CD4 to CD8 peripheral T-cell ratio, and lymph node T-cells demonstrate a dose-dependent proliferative response to the specific ovalbumin ligand. Phenotypes for the two sublines (OT-II.2)425-2 and 426-6 are described as identical. (J:87876)
