Immune responses of inbred guinea pigs to the sequential polymer poly(L-Tyr-L-Ala-Gly): studies with the oligomers of the polymers.

Abstract

Synthetic known sequence polypeptides poly(Tyrosine-Glutamic acid-Alanine-Glycine) T-G-A-Gly), were found to be very immunogenic in responder inbred guinea pigs. Two and one-half micrograms were enough to elicit both humoral and cellular responses. Only the alpha-helical oligomers were immunogenic and were able to inhibit the homologous antigen-antibody… (More)
