N normal phenotype
• most cells of the body express a membrane bound form of chicken ovalbumin on their cell surface

immune system
• dendritic cells in the skin present an epitope of chicken ovalbumin in complex with the MHC allele Kb
• splenocytes are able to activate OT-I and OT-II transgenic T cells when cultured in vitro
• full thickness tail skin grafted from transgenic mice to C57BL/6 mice have a mean survival time of 33.9 days compared a mean survival time of over 200 days for non-transgenic donors
• recipient mice show accelerated rejection (18 days) when grafted with transgenic tail skin a second time
• recipient mice also show accelerated rejection when adoptively transferred with OT-I or OT-II T cells (OT-I = Tg(TcraTcrb)1100Mjb, OT-II = Tg(TcraTcrb)425Cbn)
• when recipient mice lack T cells (Tcratm1Mom homozygotes), rejection of the transgenic skin grafts fail to occur
• when recipient mice lack CD8 T cells (Cd8atm1Mak homozygotes), transgenic skin grafts shrink rapidly to 10-30% of their original size but then survive indefinitely
• when recipient mice lack CD4 T cells (H2-Ab1tm1Gru homozygotes), transgenic skin grafts remain healthy for the first 40 days after which they start progressively contracting with 25% of the grafts being lost by 115 days
