Example sentences for: immunodominant

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

  • Anaphylaxis also developed in some NOD mice that had been immunized and challenged with preparations of PD peptides (that are not immunodominant in NOD mice), although both the drop in body temperature and the death rate in these mice were significantly less than those observed in the mice immunized and challenged with G7 peptides.

  • In accord with these results, immunization of the NOD mice with PD peptides produced a less robust specific IgG1 antibody response than did immunization with the immunodominant G7 peptides (see below).

  • 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.

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

  • Unfortunately, some synthetic peptides, including some corresponding to immunodominant epitopes (those which cause the biggest part of the immune response) from tumor antigens, only seem to bind MHC class I molecules with medium to low affinity and/or are recognized by specific T cells with relatively low avidity.
