Rabbit IgG raised against BALB/c mouse skin epithelium was found to prolong the survival of BALB/c mouse skin grafts in CBA mice. Anti skin epithelium IgG and antithymocyte IgG have many features in common. It is suggested that the protective effect of anti skin epithelium rabbit IgG involves 3 mutually related factors: antithymocyte effect; protective coating of the surface; and antibody suppression affecting the macrophages.
