A comparison of the IgG isotype expression in the so-called thymus-independent immune responses to alpha(1----3) and alpha(1----6) dextran



A comparison of the IgG isotype expression in the so-called thymus-independent immune responses to alpha(1----3) and alpha(1----6) dextran



Cellular Immunology 116(2): 482-488



This paper presents data on the IgG antibody response against two "thymus-independent" dextran (Dex) antigens from Leuconostoc mesenteroides, alpha(1----3) Dex B 1355S and alpha(1----6) Dex B 512F in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice, which are considered to be responders or low responders to the respective antigen. The data point toward three common rules governing the two anti-Dex responses despite immunogenetic and antigenic disparities: (1) age dependency of the IgG isotype regulation of the response; (2) down-regulation of IgG isotype expression by T cells; and (3) individually determined preposition for IgG isotype formation in a given animal.
