  • a Values indicate the total number of tetramer+ donor cells isolated and the percentage of recovery of the total transferred population from each tissue. Values of total tetramer+ cells from recipient tissues are the average ± SD derived from two or three mice from all tissues, except the liver cell transfer, which represents a single recipient.
