As a consequence several therapeutic strategies were adopted: lowering Tac doses from 0.2 mg/day to 0.04 mg/day, large spectrum antibiotics and Thymoglobulin (rabbit anti-human thymocyte immunoglobulin) administration to prevent a potential acute rejection, consequence to low Tac levels.
To exclude the possibility that our surprising results were due to an unknown bias in the hybridoma cloning, we carried out RNase protection assays in which C57BL/6 (B6) type [sup.32]P-labelled antisense V[alpha]14J[alpha]18 mRNA derived from one of the hybridomas was hybridized with total mRNAs (sense) from normal B6 thymocytes. (8) In this assay, the samples are then treated with RNase to digest the unhybridized single stranded portion of the [sup.32]P-labelled probe, thus "protecting" that portion of the probe that had hybridized with thymocyte mRNAs, leaving it intact (Fig.
