The engrafted organ becomes a chimera as the recipient's leukocytes station themselves in the transplant. Remarkably, the recipient becomes chimeric as well, in a reverse migration involving immune cells from the graft. Interactions between donor and recipient cells are tolerogenic-a process with implications for the goal of graft acceptance with minimal immunosuppression.
