To investigate whether there is more than one H-Y allele, 8 mouse strains were derived by crossing C57BL/6JNIcr females with 1 male from each of 6 isogenic strains and 2 males from the Icr randombred strain, and young adults were challenged twice with spleen cells from B6 males . The results did not reveal any H-Y incompatibility with B6 cells among any of the males from the consomic strains tested. It is concluded that the specificity of the H-Y antigen has been preserved through evolution, and that there is only one H-Y allele.
