Immunogenicity In Vitro: Structural Correlation

  • Marc Feldmann


Immunologists strive to understand the mechanism by which lymphoid cells are stimulated by antigen to produce antibody. One approach to this problem is the identification of particularly immunogenic molecules. By comparing the structures of immunogenic and nonimmunogenic molecules possessing the same antigenic determinants, some of the details of the “key” which turns lymphocytes on should be revealed.
