histoincompatibility

 [his″to-in″kom-pat″ĭ-bil´ĭ-te]
the quality of a cellular or tissue graft preventing its acceptance or functioning when transplanted to another organism; said of the relationship between the genotypes (histocompatibility genes) of donor and host in which a graft generally will be rejected. adj., adj histoincompat´ible.

his·to·in·com·pat·i·bil·i·ty

(his'tō-in'kom-pat'i-bil'i-tē),
A state of immunologic dissimilarity of tissues sufficient to cause rejection of a homograft when tissue is transplanted from one person to another; implies a difference in histocompatibility genes in donor and recipient.

histoincompatibility

/his·to·in·com·pat·i·bil·i·ty/ (his″to-in″kom-pat″ĭ-bil´it-e) the quality of not being accepted or not remaining functional; said of that relationship between the genotypes of donor and host in which a graft generally will be rejected.histoincompat´ible

his·to·in·com·pat·i·bil·i·ty

(his'tō-in'kŏm-pat'i-bil'i-tē)
A state of immunologic dissimilarity of tissues sufficient to cause rejection of a homograft when tissue is transplanted from one person to another; implies a difference in histocompatibility genes in donor and recipient.

histoincompatibility

immunological dissimilarity; transplanted donor tissues would be rejected by the recipient

histoincompatibility

the quality of a cellular or tissue graft preventing its acceptance or functioning when transplanted to another animal; said of the relationship between the genotypes (histocompatibility genes) of donor and recipient in which a graft generally will be rejected because of allogeneic differences in the major histocompatibility antigens.
