The antigen-binding selectivity of 2 sets of anti-DNA antibodies from autoimmune mice and from normal mice was examined. Eighteen affinity-purified anti-DNA auto-antibodies from MRL-lpr/lpr mice were examined for binding to the haptens azobenzenearsonate, phosphorylcholine, (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl)acetyl and (4-hydroxy-5-iodo-3-nitrophenyl)acetyl (NIP). Five of these autoantibodies bound to NIP-protein conjugates. In contrast, none of 12 monoclonal antibodies to single-stranded DNA or left-handed Z-DNA induced by immunization of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice with nucleic acid antigens reacted with the tested haptens. In a reciprocal test of the relationship between anti-DNA and anti-NIP binding, we examined 24 monoclonal antibodies to NIP, from various strains of mice, for binding to DNA. One such antibody from a BALB/c mouse also bound to DNA. These results are discussed in the context of the mechanisms underlying autoantibody hyperproduction.

Abstract

The antigen-binding selectivity of 2 sets of anti-DNA antibodies from autoimmune mice and from normal mice was examined. Eighteen affinity-purified anti-DNA auto-antibodies from MRL-lpr/lpr mice were examined for binding to the haptens azobenzenearsonate, phosphorylcholine, (4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl)acetyl and (4-hydroxy-5-iodo-3-nitrophenyl)acetyl (NIP). Five of these autoantibodies bound to NIP-protein conjugates. In contrast, none of 12 monoclonal antibodies to single-stranded DNA or left-handed Z-DNA induced by immunization of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice with nucleic acid antigens reacted with the tested haptens. In a reciprocal test of the relationship between anti-DNA and anti-NIP binding, we examined 24 monoclonal antibodies to NIP, from various strains of mice, for binding to DNA. One such antibody from a BALB/c mouse also bound to DNA. These results are discussed in the context of the mechanisms underlying autoantibody hyperproduction.
