These antigens are less stringently arranged purchase 10mg prednisolone with visa allergy shots every other day, and are usually flexible or mobile on cell surfaces generic prednisolone 10 mg allergy on eyelid. These are monomeric or oligomeric (usually soluble) antigens that do not cause Ig cross-linking, and are unable to induce B-cell proliferation on their own. In this case an additional signal, provided by contact with T cells, is required for B-cell activation (see also B-cell tolerance, p. Receptors on the surface of B cells and soluble serum antibodies usually re- cognize epitopes present on the surface of native antigens. For protein anti- gens, the segments of polypeptide chains involved are usually spaced far apart when the protein is in a denatured, unfolded, state. A conformational or structural epitope is not formed unless the antigen is present in its native configuration. So-called sequential or linear epitopes—formed by contigu- ous segments of a polypeptide chain and hidden inside the antigen—are lar- gely inaccessible to B cell receptors or antibodies, as long as the antigen mol- ecule or infectious agent retains its native configuration. The specific role of linear epitopes is addressed below in the context of T cell-mediated immunity. B cells are also frequently found to be capable of specific recognition of sugar molecules on the surface of infectious agents, whilst T cells appear to be in- capable of recognizing such sugar molecules. As mentioned above, contact between one, or a few, B-cell receptors and the correlating antigenic epitope does not in itself suffice for the induction of B-cell proliferation. Instead proliferation requires either a high degree of B cell receptor cross-linking by antigen, or additional T cell- mediated signals.

Usage subject to terms and conditions of license Immune Responses and Effector Mechanisms 69 result in errors, or even the activation of oncogenes. The results of this process may therefore include the generation of B-cell lymphomas and leukemia’s. Uncontrolled proliferation of differentiated B cells (plasma cells) results in the generation of monoclonal plasma cell tumors known as multiple mye- 2 lomas or plasmocytomas. Occasionally, myelomas produce excessive amounts of the light chains of the monoclonal immunoglobulin, and these proteins can then be detected in the urine as Bence-Jones proteins. Such proteins represented some of the first immunoglobulin components acces- sible for chemical analysis and they revealed important early details regard- ing immunoglobulin structure. It is possible to isolate a single cell from such a polyclonal immune response in an experimental setting. Fusing this cell with an “immortal” proliferating myeloma cell results in generation of a hybridoma, which then produces chemically uniform immunoglobulins of the original specificity, and inwhatever amounts are required. This method was developed by Koeler and Milstein in 1975, and is used to produce mono- clonal antibodies (Fig. Many monoclonal antibodies are still produced in mouse and rat cells, making them xenogeneic for hu- mans. Attempts to avoid the resulting rejection problems have involved the production of antibodies by human cells (which remains difficult), or the “humanization” of murine antibodies by recombinant insertion of the variable domains of a murine antibody adjacent to the constant domains of a human antibody. The generation of a transgenic mice, in which the Ig genes have been replaced by human genes, has made the production of hy- bridoma’s producing completely human antibodies possible.
