Control by H-2 genes of murine antibody responses to protein antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

, : Control by H-2 genes of murine antibody responses to protein antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Immunology 59(3): 329-332

The genetic control of antibody responses after immunization with Mycobacterium tuberculosis soluble antigens was examined in inbred and H-2 congenic mouse strains. Antibody levels to five distinct epitopes were determined by a competitive inhibition test using radiolabelled murine monoclonal probes. High or low responder antibody levels were associated with either the H-2b (TB23, TB71 and TB72 specificities) or the H-2k (TB68) allele on both B10 and BALB backgrounds. The high response of TB78 specificity associated with the H-2k on the BALB but with H-2b haplotype on B10 background. The phenotype of (C57BL/6 X CBA)F1 hybrids reflected the high response for four and the low or intermediary response for one (TB68) of the tested paratopes. This is the first demonstration of immune response gene control in respect of defined mycobacterial protein epitopes. The implications towards the analysis of pathogenic or protective mechanisms during mycobacterial infection are briefly outlined.
