Two dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of Non-Idet P-40 extracts and of specific Ia immunoprecipitates from [35S]methionine-labeled mouse spleen lymphocytes has revealed that the cell surface expression of some Ia antigens appears to be controlled by two genes. One locus, which maps in the I-A subregion, is probably the structural gene for an(More)
In an accompanying publication we show that a subpopulation of T lymphocytes, which includes allotype suppressor T cells, selectively expresses I-region determinants. In this report, we show that these determinants are controlled by a new locus, Ia-4. Unlike the classically defined Ia antigens, they are not found on B lymphocytes. Antibody against Ia-4(More)
Data presented here show that locidentify in the I-region of the H-2 gene complex are selectively expressed in different functional T-cell subpopulations. These loci are closely linked (or possibly identical) to loci that control immune responses. They control surface determinants which identify helper and suppressor T lymphocytes. Determinants described(More)
The experiments presented in this study define the molecular basis of the bm 12 mutation. Initial characterization of an alloreactive T cell clone, 4.1.4, showed this clone to recognize an allodeterminant present on the E beta b and A beta bm12 chains, but not on the bm 12 parent A beta b chain. To define the extent of sequence shared between the I-E beta(More)
A soluble allogeneic effect factor (AEF) was produced by using H-2 congenic mouse strains and a serum.free cell culture medium. An AEF derived from untreated activated responder cells and irradiated stimulator cells provided helper cell function in a primary and secondary antibody response for both T-cell-depleted responder B cells and stimulator B cells.(More)
Resistance to radiation leukemia virus-induced leukemogenesis is associated with the H-2D region of the H-2 complex, or with closely linked loci. The H-2Dd allele confers resistance ot the disease, while the H-2D-Q and H-2Ds alleles are associated with susceptibility. It is not clear whether Ir genes, or an alternative mechanism are responsible for the(More)
Treatment of splenic T lymphocytes with anti-Ia antiserum inhibits the binding of antigen-antibody (AgAb) complexes to the majority (less than 50%) of Fc receptor-positive (FcR+) T cells. A similar inhibition was observed with anti-H-2D and anti-H-2K sera but not with anti-Thy 1.2. Despite the presence of Ia determinants on peripheral T cells, as(More)
Katz et al. (1) have demonstrated a restriction in lymphoid cell interaction when the antigen used is under immune response (Ir) gene control. T cells from (low responder x high responder) F(1) mice primed to the terpolymer L-glutamic acid, L-lysine, L-tyrosine (GLT) can collaborate with 2,4-dinitrophenyl (DNP)-primed B cells from the Ir-GLT high responder(More)
Previous studies from this laboratory have mapped resistance and/or susceptibility to radiation-induced leukemia virus (RadLV)-induced neoplasia to the H-2D region. H-2 linked effects on virus replication can be detected subsequent to the initial virus infection, and clear-cut differences in numbers of virus infected thymus cells can be detected as early as(More)
