Denisova1996 G. Denisova, B. Stern, D. Raviv, J. Zwickel, N. I. Smorodinsky, and J. M. Gershoni. Humoral Immune Response to Immunocomplexed HIV Envelope Glycoprotein 120. AIDS Res. Hum. Retroviruses, 12:901-909, 1996. Mice were injected with the gp120 in different configurations: free, complexed with CD4, and as an immunocomplex bound to a V3 loop MAb (M77) of the protein. Polyclonal sera, as well as monoclonal antibodies produced in each case, were analyzed. The free gp120 and gp120-CD4 complex immunogens stimulated responses were directed mainly toward conformational epitopes, but gp120 immunocomplexed with MAb M77 also produced numerous and varied MAbs directed toward linear epitopes that were presumably inaccessible on the gp120, gp120-CD4 proteins.
