The influence of V kappa gene polymorphism on the induction of silent idiotypes in the arsonate system.

It has been previously shown that it is possible to modify the expressed repertoire of a given individual using idiotypic manipulation. For example, A/J mice respond to arsonate challenge by synthesizing a dominant idiotype, CRIA, whereas BALB/c mice do not. However, after treatment with rabbit polyclonal anti-CRIA antibodies (Ab2 or anti-idiotypic… (More)
