The primary antibody response to aqueous immunization with a low molecular-weight lot of (T,G)-A — L (#420) was studied in congenic pairs of inbred mouse strains. Two new genetic controls were identified, both of which quantitatively regulate the production of IgM anti-(T,G)-A — L antibody. Testing of F1 and F2 progeny demonstrated that one of these genes is linked to the major histocompatibility (H-2) complex, and that high response is dominant over low response. Whether this gene is identical… 
Complementation of H-2-linked genes controlling immune responsiveness

TLDR
The laboratory has concentrated on the investigation of the genetics of immune responsiveness using inbred strains of mice, and revealed that the responses of experimental animals to a wide variety of antigens are under the control of dominant Ir genes.
H-2-linked recessiveIr gene regulation of high antibody responsiveness to TNP hapten conjugated to autogenous albumin
TLDR
Recessive inheritance of high responsiveness was confirmed in hybrid progenies of three different low × high-responder crosses, and the gene locus controlling specific responsiveness to TNP-MSA, now designatedIr-6, was mapped within theI-B subregion of theH-2 complex.
Multigenic regulation of the primary immune response to ovalbumin in mice
At least four genes regulate the primary immune response to ovalbumin in mice. The ability to be sensitized to transfer delayed type hypersensitivity to ovalbumin is controlled by two genes. One
Genetic analysis of the non-H-2-linked Ir genes controlling the cytotoxic T-cell response to H-Y in H-2d mice
TLDR
Evidence is presented, using recombinant inbred strains and immunoglobulin heavy chain (Igh) congenic strains of mice, to show that there is more than one non-H-2 Ir-gene involved, that the main controlling genes are not linked to the Igh complex, and that at least one non the H-3 region on chromosome 2.
Expression of Immune Response Genes for Trinitrophenyl Conjugates of Poly-L ( Tyr , Glu )-Poly-D , LAla-- Poly-LLys in B Cells and Macrophages *
TLDR
The authors' work has shown that the Ir g,~ne controlling cross-reaction between sheep erythrocytes and burro ery Throttlecytes at the helper T-cell level is expressed at least by the B cell in vitro.
Basal serum immunoglobulin levels
TLDR
Basal serum levels of IgA in the congenic mice C57 BL/10 and C57BL/10 are shown to be different and evidence for linkage of Ig a phenotype could be demonstrated only with progeny from the F1 hybrid that exhibited the low IgA phenotype.
Helper and suppressor T cell factors
TLDR
There is growing evidence that the regulatory capacity of these T cell subsets with distinct differentiation (cell surface) markers, tissue localization, drug sensitivities, and lifetimes have been found to mediate these various effects.

TLDR
Two congenic strains of mice were identified that differ in their serum immunoglobulin levels, and the low-immunoglOBulin phenotype segregates in the F2 population.

TLDR
It is suggested that the switchover from IgM to IgG precursor cells can be induced by antigen itself, without the action of specific T cells, as well as from the evidence that low responders very probably have a T cell defect.

TLDR
In mice genetic control of the ability to form an immune response to the random terpolymer of glu 60 , ala 30 , tyr 10 (GAT) is regulated by an Ir gene which maps between the K and Ss-Slp region of the H-2 complex, where A, A.By and (B10 × A)F 1 mice demonstrated at least 10-fold higher GAT-binding capacities than B10 or B10.

TLDR
The kinetics of antibody formation after immunization with the synthetic polypeptide poly-L(Tyr, Glu)-poly-D, L-Ala--poly-L-Lys in aqueous solution were studied in genetically high and low responder strains of mice, consistent with the hypothesis that the immune response-1 gene exerts its effect on theimmune response at the time of switchover from IgM to IgG antibody production.
Inheritance in the rat of the antibody response to two different determinants of (T,G)-A--L
TLDR
Two (T,G)-A-L preparations differing in molecular weight were tested for immunogenecity in two inbred rat strains, AS and BN, and the inheritance of antibody response toward one of the determinants was autosomal, dominant and linked to the major histocompatibility complex.

TLDR
The conclusion was drawn that the cellular difference between the two strains lies in the responsiveness of their B cells to specific signals or stimuli received from T cells.

TLDR
It is suggested that C mice are unable to make an IgM antibody response to SSS-III and other polysaccharide antigens, despite the fact that they possess the capacity to synthesize normal amounts of IgM immunoglobulin.

EVIDENCE FOR THE LINKAGE OF THE IGCH LOCUS TO A GENE CONTROLLING THE IDIOTYPIC SPECIFICITY OF ANTI-p-AZOPHENYLARSONATE ANTIBODIES IN STRAIN A MICE
TLDR
The results suggest close linkage of VH and CH genes and the cross-reactive idiotype was found in nearly all F1 mice tested, suggesting that idiotype must be a function of V region sequences.

TLDR
Observations support the hypothesis, suggested from studies on BALB/c plasmacytoma proteins, that the variable regions of mouse anti‐phosphorylcholine antibodies are specified by germ‐line genes.
