TCR repertoire of tissue-infiltrating T cells before and after implantation

TCR sequences were amplified with BV-BC specific primer sets and separated on a 5% polyacrylamide gel. Results from three patients (GCA-1, BV2, left panel; GCA-2, BV8, middle panel; and GCA-3, BV2, right panel) are shown. The T cell infiltrate after implantation was less diverse as documented by the smaller number of TCR size classes and the emergence of dominant bands.
