This unit describes the antigenic stimulation of in vitro antibody production by B cells and the subsequent measurement of secreted antibodies. A generalized system for inducing in vitro antibody production is presented along with a procedure for quantifying the number of antibody-producing cells by plaque-forming cell (PFC) assays: the Cunningham-Szenberg technique and the Jerne-Nordin technique. The assay can be modified as described to measure all classes of antibodies or to enumerate total immunoglobulin-secreting B cells. A protocol for preparing the resting B cells by Percoll gradient centrifugation is also described. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Immunomodulating Actions of Carotenoids. T2 - Enhancement of In Vivo and In Vitro Antibody Production to T-Dependent Antigens. AU - Jyonouchi, H.. AU - Zhang, L.. AU - Gross, M.. AU - Tomita, Y.. PY - 1994/1/1. Y1 - 1994/1/1. N2 - Previously, we demonstrated an enhancement of in vitro antibody (Ab) production in response to T-dependent antigens (TD-Ag) by astaxanthin, a carotenoid without vitamin A activity. The effects of β-carotene, a carotenoid with vitamin A activity, and lutein, another carotenoid without vitamin A activity, on in vitro Ab production were examined with spleen cells from young and old B6 mice. In addition, the in vivo effects of lutein, astaxanthin, and β-carotene on Ab production were studied in young and old B6 mice. Lutein, but not β-carotene, enhanced in vitro Ab production in response to TD-Ags. The depletion of T-helper cells prevented the enhancement of Ab production by lutein and astaxanthin. In vivo Ab production in response to TD-Ag was ...

N2 - Conventional measurement of antibody responses to vaccines largely relies on serum antibodies, which are primarily produced by bone marrow plasma cells and may not represent the entire vaccine-induced B cell repertoire, including important functional components such as those targeted to mucosal sites. After immunization or infection, activated B cells differentiate into plasmablasts in local lymphoid organs, then traffic through circulation to the target sites where they further develop into plasma cells. On day 7 after influenza vaccination, a burst of plasmablasts, highly enriched for vaccine-specific antibody secreting cells, appears in the ...
Spleen cell suspensions of unprimed donor mice containing precursors of immunocytes have been transplanted into X-irradiated recipient mice. In the presence of antigen (sheep erythrocytes) these precursors, called antigen-sensitive units, gave rise to progeny cells secreting specific antibody. We studied quantitatively the production of cells releasing IgM hemolysins (direct plaque-forming cells), IgG hemolysins (indirect plaque-forming cells), and hemagglutinins (cluster-forming cells). We found that each of these immunocyte populations was distinct, i.e., that cells releasing agglutinins did not, as a rule, release hemolysins, and vice versa. We also found that cell populations secreting IgM hemolysins did not shift, under certain experimental conditions, to the production of IgG hemolysins during the primary immune response.. By transplanting graded numbers of spleen cells, we succeeded in limiting to one or a few the number of antigen-sensitive units that reached the recipient spleen. We ...
In the present study, we have established a new mouse model with improved T- and B-cell engraftment and differentiation. The involvement of IL-6 in thymopoiesis is consistent with previous murine studies. For example, in adult mice, IL-6 deficiency leads to a 20% to 40% reduction of thymocytes and peripheral T cells.23 Administration of IL-6 induces the differentiation of CD4−CD8− thymocytes into CD4+CD8+ and CD4+CD8− cells.35 Furthermore, in agreement with the previous finding that B-cell maturity in humanized mice increased with longer time post-reconstitution, surpassing 60% after 24 weeks,9 we noticed in our model that ,75% of human B cells in blood and spleen were mature at week 18. More importantly, and in contrast to other models, we also found significantly increased total IgG and antigen-specific IgG production. This increase is associated with enhanced differentiation of IgG+ memory B cells and plasmablasts. Therefore, our model provides an alternative and improved strategy for ...

Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) appears in mice immunized with less than an optimal immunogenic dose of sheep red blood cells (SRBC), but is blocked progressively as antibody production increases in response to larger doses of SRBC. Treatment with cyclophosphamide (CY) was shown to release T cells from this inhibitory influence of the humoral response, and cause enhancement of DTH. The magnitude of this enhancing effect on T-cell activity was markedly dependent on the time of treatment relative to the time of immunization, and on the time chosen for measuring DTH. The reasons for these pronounced effects of timing are threefold: (a) CY given before antigenic stimulation has a long-lasting effect on antibody formation, but no apparent effect on the precursors of activated T cells. (b) After antigenic stimulation, T cells also become susceptible to CY. (c) The production of a nonspecific participant (monocyte) in the DTH reaction is also suppressed by CY, though the supply of circulating ...
Vaccines are among the most effective public health tools for combating certain infectious diseases such as influenza. The role of the humoral immune system in vaccine-induced protection is widely appreciated; however, our understanding of how antibody specificities relate to B cell function remains limited due to the complexity of polyclonal antibody responses. To address this, we developed the Spec-seq framework, which allows for simultaneous monoclonal antibody (mAb) characterization and transcriptional profiling from the same single cell. Here, we present the first application of the Spec-seq framework, which we applied to human plasmablasts after influenza vaccination in order to characterize transcriptional differences governed by B cell receptor (BCR) isotype and vaccine reactivity. Our analysis did not find evidence of long-term transcriptional specialization between plasmablasts of different isotypes. However, we did find enhanced transcriptional similarity between clonally related B ...

Because most antigens are complex structures with multiple epitopes, they result in the production of multiple antibodies in the lab animal. This so-called polyclonal antibody response is also typical of the response to infection by the human immune system. Antiserum drawn from an animal will thus contain antibodies from multiple clones of B.

This webpage was produced as an assignment for an undergraduate course at Davidson College**. Humoral Immune Response. According to Whitley and Miller (2001), the adaptive immune system quickly responds to HSV infection with a humoral response, which involves neutralization, opsonization, and complement activation (Janeway 2005). B cells that differentiate into plasma-secreting cells produce antibodies that can bind HSV epitopes in the antigen binding site (see Figure 1). The predominant antibodies against HSV belong to the IgA isotype, and this type of antibody is secreted by plasma cells. IgA can be detected 3 days after infection, IgG1 and IgG3 are detected next, and finally IgM (Whitley and Miller 2001). Antibodies against gD and gB reduce the spread of HSV-1 through axonal transport, and this is one way that the immune system controls HSV infection (Mikloska et al. 1999). However, while antibodies produced by B cells can neutralize HSV, they cannot halt HSV replication or reactivation ...

Antibodies are Y-shaped proteins called immunoglobulins (Ig) and are made only by B cells. The antibody binds to the antigen at the ends of the arms of the Y. The area at the base of the Y determines how the antibody will destroy the antigen. This area is used to categorize antibodies into five main classes: IgM, IgG, IgA, IgD, and IgE. During the humoral immune response, IgM is the first class of antibody made. After several days, other classes appear. Exactly which other Ig classes a B cell makes depends on the kind of interleukins it receives from the T helper cells ...

Objective Despite the development of highly effective direct-acting antivirals, a prophylactic vaccine is needed for eradicating HCV. A major hurdle of HCV vaccine development is to induce immunity against HCV with high genome diversity. We previously demonstrated that a soluble E2 (sE2) expressed from insect cells induces broadly neutralising antibodies (NAbs) and prevents HCV infection. The objective of this study is to develop a multivalent HCV vaccine to increase the antigenic coverage. ...
Increasing evidence suggests an unexpected potential for non-neutralizing antibodies to prevent HIV infection. Consequently, identification of functional linear B-cell epitopes for HIV are important for developing preventative and therapeutic strategies. We therefore explored the role of antigen-specific immune responses in controlling plasma viremia in SIV infected rhesus macaques. Thirteen rhesus macaques were inoculated either intravaginally or intrarectally with SIVMAC251. Peripheral blood CD4+ T-cells were quantified. Plasma was examined for viremia, antigen specific IgG, IgA and IgM binding responses and neutralizing antibodies. Regions containing binding epitopes for antigen-specific IgG, IgM and IgA responses were determined, and the minimum size of linear Envelope epitope responsible for binding antibodies was identified. The presence of neutralizing antibodies did not correlate the outcome of the disease. In a few SIV-infected macaques, antigen-specific IgG and IgM responses in plasma
The present study examined the association between psychological stress, social support and antibody response to both thymus-dependent and thymus-independent vaccinations. Stressful life events in the previous year and customary social support were measured by standard questionnaires at baseline in 75 (41 females) healthy students. Antibody status was assessed at baseline, 4 and 18 weeks following vaccination with formaldehyde inactivated hepatitis A virus and pneumococcal polysaccharides, which induce thymus-dependent and -independent antibody responses respectively. Controlling for baseline antibody status, life event stress was negatively associated with antibody response to the hepatitis A vaccine at the 18-week follow-up; participants reporting a greater number of stressful life events had a poorer antibody response. There was no relationship between psychological stress and antibody response to pneumococcal vaccination. Social support was not associated with the antibody response to ...
Further breeding studies were carried out to test the polygenic model for the control of the antibody response to a synthetic polypetide antigen and to examine more closely the nature of the sex influence on the antibody response. The backcrosses of reciprocally mated F1 hybrids into both the highly responding ACI strain of inbred rats and the poorly responding F344 strain yielded offspring with low, moderate and high responses in a ratio compatible with that predicted by the polygenic model. The backcrosses having a low antibody response bred true with inbreeding and with second backcrossing, as predicted, so they apparently have only those genetic factors that lead to a low antibody response. Limited inbreeding studies with the highly responding backcrosses indicated that they also bred true. Inbreeding of moderately responding backcrosses with moderately or highly responding backcrosses gave offspring that showed the whole spectrum of antibody responses, as would be expected for control by ...
In an unsupervised discovery approach, we combined two-dimensional hierarchical clustering with PCA ( 21, 22). We used PC1 to PC3, which retain the largest possible variation that can be displayed in three dimensions, and projected gene expression and clinical information into the distribution of tumor samples. Samples were separated on PC1 predominantly according to the expression of the ER metagene, reiterating the pivotal influence of ER for the molecular profile of breast cancer. The proliferation metagene formed another axis. Notably, almost all ER-negative breast cancer samples were characterized by high proliferation. Tumors with intermediate ER expression showed the highest variation in proliferative activity. High expression of proliferation-associated genes in this subtype seemed to be linked with an equally poor prognosis as for ER-negative tumors. When systematically using different metagenes for an explanation for the noticeably low number of early metastases in the region with ...
Cocaine has been reported to directly suppress the in vitro immune responses at very high concentrations. In the present study, the possible role of metabolism in cocaine-induced immunosuppression was investigated in splenocyte cultures isolated from B6C3F1 female mice. Since cocaine can be metabolized by both esterase and P-450 monooxygenase, we studied the direct effects of cocaine, benzoylecgonine and norcocaine on the in vitro T-dependent antibody response to SRBC. Direct exposure to cocaine only produced a modest (30%) but nonsignificant suppression of the antibody response, while benzoylecgonine, a primary product of metabolism by the esterase pathway, was devoid of activity. In contrast, direct exposure to norcocaine, the initial product of N-demethylation by the P-450 pathway, produced significant suppression at concentrations greater than or equal to 10 mu M. Similar results were observed in studies measuring LPS and Con A mitogenicity. Furthermore, a significant suppression was ...
Young offspring of immunologically paralyzed mice were more susceptible to the induction of both paralysis and immunity to SIII than were normal mice of the same age. This difference decreased gradually with age. We attributed the difference in immunologic responsiveness between the two types of mice to a lesser concentration of natural antibody specific for the SIII in the offspring of paralyzed mice as compared to normal mice of the same age. Administration of either specifically purified anti-SIII or normal IgG restored the offspring of paralyzed mice to the same level of susceptibility to the induction of both paralysis and immunity as that exhibited by normal mice. The biologic activity of normal IgG was removed by a specific immunosorbent, thereby confirming that the effect of normal IgG was also due to specific anti-SIII antibody. We therefore concluded that a relative deficiency of natural anti-SIII antibodies was indeed responsible for the altered immunologic behavior of offspring of ...

The immune system is often divided into two sections. The first is innate immunity, which is comprised of hereditary (always there) components that provide an immediate first-line of defense to continuously ward off pathogens. The second is adaptive (acquired) immunity that works by manufacturing a class of proteins called antibodies (humoral immune system), and by producing T-cells specifically designed to target particular pathogens (cell-mediated immune system). This response takes days to develop, and so is not effective at preventing an initial invasion, but it will normally prevent any subsequent infection, and also aids in clearing up longer-lasting infections.. Another way of categorizing this is nonspecific defenses (skin, mucous membranes, phagocytes, fever, interferons, cilia, and stomach acid) and specific defenses (the cell-mediated and the humoral systems, both of which attack specific pathogens).. In the innate immune system, macrophages are the second-line of defense, after ...

Vaccines induce memory B-cells that provide high affinity secondary antibody responses to identical antigens. Memory B-cells can also re-instigate affinity maturation, but how this happens against antigenic variants is poorly understood despite its potential impact on driving broadly protective immunity against pathogens such as Influenza and Dengue. We immunised mice sequentially with identical or variant Dengue-virus envelope proteins and analysed antibody and germinal-centre (GC) responses. Variant protein boosts induced GC with higher proportions of IgM+ B-cells. The most variant protein re-stimulated GCs with the highest proportion of IgM+ cells with the most diverse, least mutated V-genes and with a slower but efficient serum antibody response. Recombinant antibodies from GC B-cells showed a higher affinity for the variant antigen than antibodies from a primary response, confirming a memory origin. This reveals a new process of antibody memory, that IgM memory cells with fewer mutations ...
