Abstract

We tried to establish an assay system for screening and assessment of immunoregulatory factors using whole cell cultures of mouse splenocytes and found that splenic adhesive cells markedly increased immunogobulin (Ig) production of splenocytes. In the absence of adhesive cells, lipopolysaccharides, pokeweed mitogen, and phytohemagglutinin stimulated the production of IgA, IgG, and IgM in a class-dependent manner. Adhesive cells increased more markedly Ig production of splenocytes stimulated with these mitogens. When mouse splenocytes were cultured with milk proteins in the absence of adhesive cells, lactoferrin, β-lactoglobulin, α-casein, and β-casein stimulated IgA and IgG production. Adhesive cells increased IgA production of splenocytes stimulated with milk proteins, especially. These results suggest that the assay system is useful for assessment of Ig production-regulating factors.
