Identifying major histocompatibility complex class II-DR molecules in bovine and swine peripheral blood monocyte-derived macrophages using mAb-L243.

Vaccine 2024 April 17
Major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC-II) molecules are involved in immune responses against pathogens and vaccine candidates' immunogenicity. Immunopeptidomics for identifying cancer and infection-related antigens and epitopes have benefited from advances in immunopurification methods and mass spectrometry analysis. The mouse anti-MHC-II-DR monoclonal antibody L243 (mAb-L243) has been effective in recognising MHC-II-DR in both human and non-human primates. It has also been shown to cross-react with other animal species, although it has not been tested in livestock. This study used mAb-L243 to identify Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium peptides binding to cattle and swine macrophage MHC-II-DR molecules using flow cytometry, mass spectrometry and two immunopurification techniques. Antibody cross-reactivity led to identifying expressed MHC-II-DR molecules, together with 10 Staphylococcus aureus peptides in cattle and 13 S. enterica serovar Typhimurium peptides in swine. Such data demonstrates that MHC-II-DR expression and immunocapture approaches using L243 mAb represents a viable strategy for flow cytometry and immunopeptidomics analysis of bovine and swine antigen-presenting cells.
