3 Transgenic mice are often developed from dark- and light-coated pairs to readily determine which of the offsprings contains the transgene. Shown here is the spotted chimeric mother and completely dark pups that are screened to be homozygous for the transgene. 6Col/GFP associated with preosteoblasts just prior to mineralization, and nontoxic xylenol orange (XO) staining of mineral taken from the same area in the cell culture plate at multiple time points. The cell reporter technology allows continuous monitoring of cell differentiation without requiring the use of dyes or antibody staining that require cell culture termination.

1 Summary of pathways for recognition of allograft by the adaptive immune system. In direct antigen presentation, CD4+ Th cells or CD8+ Tc cells recognize foreign antigens directly on the allograft cell surface of the transplanted tissue. Th cells recognize antigen presented by antigen-presenting cells via MHC II (typically presented by professional antigen-presenting cells residing in the donor tissue). Tc cells recognize antigen presented by nucleated cells via MHC I. Once the specific TCR/MHC binding occurs, pathways are initiated to result in generation of alloantigen-specific effector T cells.
