 [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

(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

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.
