Snell GD, Cherry M, McKenzie IF, Bailey DW. Ly-4, a new locus determining a lymphocyte cell-surface alloantigen in mice. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA. 1973;70(4):1108-11.
A new locus is described that determines an alloantigen on the surface of lymphocytes. It differs from loci previously described in that the corresponding antibody, at least in most antisera, reacts almost exclusively with node lymphocytes, and weakly or not at all with thymuslymphocytes. Positive strains include C57BL/6, C57BL/10, C57L, C57BR/cd, and RF; negative strains include BALB/c, C3H, and SJL. The symbol Ly-4 is assigned, with the C57BL/6 allele being Ly-4(b), and the BALB/c allele Ly-4(a).
