Flow cytometric analysis of peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL) using a monoclonal antibody to HLA-DQ demonstrated that transgenic mice express the transgenes. 25-40% of the PBLs of mixed-background transgenic mice homozygous for the targeted MHC class II mutation H2-Ab1tm1Dim express the transgenes. Lymph nodes of such mice contain three-fold the levels of CD4+ CD44+ T-cells as do those of nontransgenic MHC class II-deficient mice, levels similar to those of class II-sufficient mice. Immunization of transgenic H2-Ab1tm1Dim homozygous mice with bovine collagen II results in a strong IgG antibody response to the immunogen, and 66% of these mice develop severe, persistent arthritis.
