Ir gene-controlled response to haptenated hen ovomucoid: isotypic specificity and dominant nonresponsiveness.


PMID 3100065

Abstract

We have examined the isotypic pattern of the response of mice to the Ir gene-controlled antigen, dinitrophenyl-ovomucoid (DNP-OM). H-2 kappa mice are high responders (HR); (H-2b,d mice are low responders (LR). The isotype patterns of HR and LR strains differ both quantitatively and qualitatively. In the primary response to doses of 20-100 micrograms DNP-OM, HR strains produce IgM and IgG antibodies, whereas LR strains produce only IgM. Background genes modify the kinetics of the IgGl primary response in HR strains, but no background was found which allowed an IgG response in a LR strain. In secondary responses, priming with 0.2 microgram DNP-OM increases secondary responses in HR strains, and decreases them in LR strains. Control of this response maps to I-A, and is not altered by the bm 12 I-Ab mutation. The LR phenotype is dominant in (HR X LR)F1 mice.
