H-2-linked Ir genes have a striking influence on the immunogenicity of idiotopes of myeloma protein 315 for T helper cells

Scandinavian Journal of Immunology

H-2-linked immune response (Ir) genes control T helper cells (Th) that recognize idiotopes of the V domains of myeloma protein 315 as carriers; Th recognition was detected by augmentation of antibody responses of hapten (4-hydroxy-3-iodo-5-nitrophenylacetyl (NIP]-primed B cells boosted with NIP conjugated to Fab315. The present study indicates that the responder k allele of the Ir VH315 gene maps to the I-A subregion of H-2. A responder s allele of the Ir V lambda 2(315) gene on an A-strain background was identified, which also most likely maps to I-A. Although the d allele of the Ir V lambda 2(315) gene is a responder allele on DBA/2 background, the D2.GD strain (with I-region haplotype AdBbJbEbCb) was non-responder to V lambda 2(315), suggesting either that the responder d allele maps to I-E or that the b allele of a second Ir V lambda 2(315) gene located to the right of I-A exerts a strong suppressive influence. The H-2b haplotype conferred non-responsiveness to VH315, V lambda 2(315), and Fv315.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
