Abstract

Biozzi mice selected for high (H) or low (L) antibody responsiveness to natural antigens have been followed for their entire life-span to examine their pathology at death. As previously found in selection I, shorter life-span and higher lymphoma incidence were observed in L responder mice than in H responder mice selected for antibody responsiveness to sheep red blood cells (selection II). In mice selected for antibody responsiveness to Salmonella flagellar antigens (selection III), similar life-span and similar lymphoma incidence were found in H and L responder mice. Natural killer (NK) cell activity, as assessed in spleen cells from young mice, was lower in L than in H responder mice of selection I but higher in L than in H responder mice of both selections II and III. All these results indicate that longevity and lymphoma incidence at death are independent of NK cell activity in mice selected for H or L antibody responsiveness to natural antigens. Furthermore, genetic selection for antibody responsiveness does not always appear to influence life-span and lymphoma incidence.
