Abstract

SUMMARY

Hybrid offspring from C57BL/6 (B6) females mated to males of the subspecies Mus musculus castaneus received B6 skin grafts. No strong Y chromosome-linked histocompatibility genes were detected, although occasional rejection of parental grafts by both male and female hybrids was observed after long periods. Rejection was attributed to interaction of B6 and Castaneus-derived genes in the hybrids.
