In the cell-mediated lymphocytotoxicity assay, A.TH effector cells sensitized to A.TL lymphocytes lyse not only A.B10.AQR effector cells lyse B10.BR and B10.BYR target cells in addition to B10.AQR cells. These findings indicate that for CML to occur across the IA region barrier, compatibility at K or D regions is not required.
