High impact information on Igk-V8


Biological context of Igk-V8


Anatomical context of Igk-V8

  • We have therefore investigated whether T-depleted spleen cells from Ig kappa light chain-expressing 129/Sv mice (129 kappa +/+) could induce, in C kappa knockout mice (129 kappa -/-), the generation of Ig constant kappa light chain region (C kappa)-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) [9].
  • The accessibility of a chromosomally integrated TCR beta minilocus recombination substrate in a V(D)J recombinase-inducible cell line (HDR37) depends on incorporation of transcriptional enhancer elements such as the Ig kappa light chain intronic enhancer (E kappa) [10].
  • Using 100 micrograms of magnetic particles (coupled with monoclonal mouse anti-rat Ig kappa light chain antibody) a very high depletion of surface Ig positive cells (mostly B-cells) from one million rat peripheral blood mononuclear cells could be achieved [11].

Associations of Igk-V8 with chemical compounds

  • The apparent half-life for Ig kappa light chain mRNA was the same in the 4T001 and I17 lines using any one technique but the value varied depending on the technique from a high value of 5.9 h following DRB to a low value of 2.4 h with actinomycin decay [12].
