Abstract

We have developed a simple three flow-rate, fixed rotor speed, counterflow centrifugal elutriation (CCE) procedure that permits the isolation of an engraftable lymphocyte-depleted (>98%) fraction from ACI rat bone marrow. The different cell fractions were characterized by morphology, alloreactivity in mixed lymphocyte culture and limiting dilution analysis, colony-forming capacity, and their capacity to reconstitute hematopoiesis and effect a graft-versus-host reaction in lethally irradiated allogeneic hosts. After CCE fractionation of ACI rat marrow, transplantation of the lymphocyte-depleted marrow fraction resulted in sustained engraftment without evidence of clinical or histologic acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). CCE fractionation of rat bone marrow may be useful preclinical model for studying lympho-hematopoietic and immune reconstitution after transplantation with lymphocyte-depleted donor marrow, as well as for studying the role of lymphocyte subpopulations on engraftment, acute GVHD, and leukemia relapse in syngeneic and allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
