Absence of lipopolysaccharide high-dose paralysis in B-cell responses: Implications for the one-signal theory

Mamchak, A; Hodgkin, Phillip D


Over 20 years ago, Coutinho and Moller reported that high concentrations of LPS were paralytic for the development of antibody secreting cells (ASC). This data was used to explain bell-shaped dose-response curves observed for antihapten antibody formation in response to haptenated LPS. In turn, this bell curve was used to formulate the one-signal model of B cell activation, which argued that antigen signalling was generally unimportant to B cell responses. The present paper re-examines LPS...[Show more]
