The mode of interaction with macrophages of two ordered synthetic polypeptides (Tyr-Tyr-Glu-Glu)-poly(DLAla)--poly(Lys), (T-T-G-G)-A--L, and (Tyr-Glu-Tyr-Glu)-poly(DLAla)--poly(Lys), (T-G-T-G)-A--L, which differ in their requirements for T-B cell co-operation in the process of antibody production, was compared. The binding of the two radiolabelled antigens to the surface of peritoneal adherent cells, their uptake by the cells and the rate of their degradation were investigated. Macrophages were…

The consequences of the intracellular retention of pathogen-derived T-cell-independent antigens on protein presentation to T cells.

TLDR
The role of defined TI antigens in the processing and presentation of defined TD antigen to specific T cells by antigen-presenting cells (APC) is reviewed and the importance of some of the chemical characteristics shared by different carbohydrates implicated in the inhibition of antigen presentation is considered.

T cell-independent antigens type 2.

TLDR
Evidence demonstrating that B cell activation via TI stimuli does not play merely a permissive role in allowing for cell cycle entry and enhanced responsiveness to other stimuli is presented, rather, the nature of the B cell activating signal is critical in determining the quantitative and qualitative profile of Ig isotype production.
