  2. Resource Description
    "These transgenic mice express the mouse alpha-chain and beta-chain T cell receptor that pairs with the CD4 coreceptor and is specific for chicken ovalbumin 323-339 in the context of I-A b. Homozygous mice are viable and fertile. In these mice there is a four-fold increase in the CD4 to CD8 peripheral T cell ratio, and lymph node T cells demonstrate a dose-dependent proliferative response to the specific ovalbumin ligand. These transgenic mice are useful for studying in vivo T cell biology such as TCR-ligand interactions, T cell activation, thymic selection, cross-presentation of antigens, process of thymic selection and central and peripheral T cell tolerance and induction."
