Example sentences for: immunodominant

How can you use “immunodominant” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • It was of interest that the unmodified protease induces antigen-specific IgG in the absence of detectable immunodominant T cell epitopes.

  • Indeed, we originally included the PD-immunized group because PD peptides are the immunodominant epitopes that are presented in transgenic NOD.PD mice that do not get diabetes [ 4 5 ] . Because of their unknown, and potentially even protective, role in the diabetes-resistant NOD.PD strain, we felt that it was important to assess whether, through a peptide therapy regimen, PD peptides might be able to protect against diabetes by shifting T H 1 to T H 2 responses in NOD mice.

  • Thus, the incidence of anaphylactic shock in mice immunized and challenged with PD peptides was significantly lower than that in mice immunized and challenged with immunodominant G7 peptides (P = 0.0058 by Fisher's exact test).

  • In the present study, we show that anti-peptide autoantibodies and fatal anaphylactic reactions can be elicited by immunodominant GAD65 peptides in NOD mice that have been injected with these peptides intraperitoneally in incomplete Freund's adjuvant (IFA), as part of an attempt to induce "tolerance" and prevent the spontaneous development of T1DM.

  • injections of the immunodominant G7 peptides (GAD 206-226/217-236/286-300) or of the additional GAD65 peptides identified in NOD.PD mice (I-A NOD/PD) (GAD 333-345/K458-470R) in IFA [ 5 ] . As noted in the background section, PD peptides are not immunodominant in NOD mice.
