allograft

 [al´o-graft]
a graft of tissue between individuals of the same species but of disparate genotype; types of donors are cadaveric, living related, and living unrelated (see under transplantation). Called also allogeneic graft and homograft.

al·lo·graft

(al'ō-graft),
A graft transplanted between genetically nonidentical individuals of the same species. Compare: autograft, xenograft.

allograft

/al·lo·graft/ (al´o-graft) a graft between individuals of the same species, but of different genotypes. Called also homograft.

allograft

(ăl′ə-grăft′)
n.
A graft of tissue obtained from a donor of the same species as, but with a different genetic make-up from, the recipient, as a tissue transplant between two humans. Also called homograft.

allograft

[al′əgraft]
Etymology: Gk, allos, other + graphion, stylus
surgical transplantation of tissue between two genetically dissimilar individuals of the same species, such as between two humans who are not monozygotic twins. Tissues commonly used for allografts include cornea, cartilage, bone, artery, and cadaver skin stored in a skin-tissue bank. Also called allogenic graft, homogenous graft, homograft, homologous graft. Compare autograft, isograft, xenograft. See also graft.

allograft

A graft—organ, tissues or cells—donated from a genetically distinct individual of the same species (in humans, an individual who is allogeneic at one or more MHC loci).

allograft

Allogeneic graft Immunology A graft–organ, tissues, or cells donated from a genetically distinct–in humans, allogeneic at one or more MHC loci—individual of the same species. See Renal transplantation. Cf Autograft, Xenograft.

al·lo·graft

(al'ō-graft)
A graft transplanted between genetically nonidentical individuals of the same species.
Synonym(s): allogeneic graft, homologous graft, homoplastic graft.
