Evidence is presented for the existence of teratocarcinoma transplantation antigens (Gt) encoded within the H-2 complex and present also on adult tissues. It has not been possible to separate these Gt loci from H-2 by recombination, and Gt factors map to each end of the H-2 complex. Previous reports indicating separation of all Gt loci from H-2 are reinterpreted. One class of such apparent recombinants has been shown to result from the outgrowth of tumor variants in mice of resistant genotype.
