Skin grafts were reciprocally exchanged in pairs of congenic lines identical in all genes except those located in the central portion of the H-2 complex. Seven such lines were tested: 6R, B10.AQR, A.TL, A.TH, 7R, 9R, and B10.HTT. In all donor-recipient combinations at least some grafts were rejected. In combinations differing at the IA subregion (and other(More)
The H-2 and Ia antigenic composition of strain pairs B10.D2 (H-2d) and M504 (H-2da). A.CA (H-2f) and M506 (H-2fa), and CBA (H-2k) and M523 (H-2ka) was compared by testing their cells against a battery of oligospecific antisera, by performing absorption analysis, and by cross-immunization. The two strains of each pair are congenric and differ in taht the(More)
The I region of the mouse H-2 complex was originally recognized because of the role it plays in the regulation of the immune response to thymus-dependent antigens (1). Later, the region was shown also to code for antigens capable of stimulating (a) T lymphocytes in the mixed lymphocyte reaction (cf. 2, 3) and in the graft-vs.-host reaction (cf. 4, 5), and(More)
Although the Friend virus-encoded membrane glycoprotein (gp55) activates erythropoietin receptors (EpoR) to cause erythroblastosis only in certain inbred strains of mice but not in other species, mutant viruses can overcome aspects of mouse resistance. Thus, mice homozygous for the resistance allele of the Fv-2 gene are unaffected by gp55 but are(More)
Strains CBA (M523) (= M523) and CBA differ by a mutation which has been mapped genetically into the K region of the H-2 complex. Similarly, strains B 10.D2 (M504 (= M504) and b 10.D2 differ in a mutation which occurred in the D region. The data presented in this study show that mixed lymphocyte culture in M523 anti-CBA and M504 anti-B 10.D2 strain(More)
Molecular relationships between beta2m and other cell surface antigens (H-2, Tla, Ia, and Thy-1) were studied with the double immunofluorescence method. Cells were incubated with an antiserum against one antigen capped, and then tested with an antiserum against a second antigen. Capping of beta2m on thymocytes led to simultaneous capping of H-2 and Tla but(More)
Although Fv-2r homozygous mice are resistant to leukemias induced either by an erythropoietin-encoding virus or by wild-type Friend virus (FV) (M. E. Hoatlin, S. L. Kozak, F. Lilly, A. Chakraborti, C. A. Kozak, and D. Kabat, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 87:9985-9989, 1990), they are susceptible to some variants of FV (R. A. Steeves, E. A. Mirand, A. Bulba,(More)
The env gene of Friend spleen focus-forming virus (SFFV) encodes a membrane glycoprotein (gp55) that is inefficiently (3 to 5%) processed from the rough endoplasmic reticulum to form a larger dimeric plasma membrane derivative (gp55p). Moreover, the SFFV env glycoprotein associates with erythropoietin receptors (EpoR) to cause proliferation of infected(More)
