  • Data represent the mean±s.e.m. of 6-10 mice for each group. ABM+++, adult bone marrow Kit+CD34+CD41+; ABM ++−, marrow Kit+CD34+CD41; ABM +−+, marrow Kit+CD34CD41+; ABM +−−, marrow Kit+CD34CD41.

    The level of chimerism in recipients of ABM +−− cells was significantly (P<0.05) higher in all lineages compared to all other groups.
