To test whether the antigen-specific stimulation of low responder-genotype B cells in tetraparental mice is due to a histoincompatibility reaction (allogeneic effect) against these B cells, tetraparental mice were constructed (a) between an Ir-1A low responder to the antigen poly-L(Tyr,Glu)-poly-D,L-Ala--poly-L-Lys. [(T,G)-A--L] and an Ir-1A F1 high responder and (b) between two histoincompatible Ir-lA low responders. In the first case the F1 high responder embryo shares the whole of the H-2 complex, including Ir, with the low responder embryo.
