Characterization of murine lymphocyte IgE receptors by flow microfluorometry.

A flow microfluorometric technique has been developed to analyze IgE receptors on splenic and mesenteric lymph node mononuclear cells from BALB/c mice. Our data show that 1) the binding of DIBADL cross-linked IgE dimers to IgE receptors is specific in that it is inhibited by monomeric rat and mouse IgE but not by mouse or rabbit IgG or by the monoclonal anti-Fc gamma R antibody 2.4G2, and conversely, the binding of DIBADL cross-linked IgG dimers is inhibited by monomeric IgG or 2.4G2 but not by rat or mouse IgE; 2) the binding of IgE dimers is saturable on cells from uninfected and Nippostrongylus brasiliensis (Nb)-infected mice; 3) IgE dimer binding is detectable on most splenic B lymphocytes from uninfected and Nb-infected mice, but not on T lymphocytes from uninfected mice, and on few, if any, T lymphocytes from Nb-infected mice; 4) Nb infection causes a parallel increase in the percentages of B lymphocytes and cells expressing IgE receptors and Fc gamma R; 5) Nb infection leads to a marked increase in B lymphocyte IgE receptor expression, has little if any effect on IgE receptor affinity, and causes only minor changes in Fc gamma R expression; and 6) in vivo activation of B lymphocytes by a goat antibody to mouse IgD decreases IgE receptor expression considerably, but has a minimal effect on Fc gamma R expression. Thus, there are separate receptors for IgE and IgG on murine B lymphocytes, and the effect of Nb infection or anti-IgD treatment on their expression is different.
