Abstract

Oligodendrocytes were isolated from bovine white matter and were injected with complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) into experimental animals. Indirect immunofluorescence studies using fluoresceinated goat anti-rabbit or anti-guinea pig immunoglobulin (GARIg; GAGPIg) showed that rabbit and guinea pig anti-oligodendrocyte (RAO, GPAO) sera reacted specifically with the surface of isolated oligodendrocytes in suspension, as well as with oligodendroglia in bovine and human brain sections, and in mouse cerebellum cultures. This activity of RAO was blocked by non-fluoresceinated GARIg and by GPAO, and absorbed by oligodendrocyte preparation (OP) or whole white matter, but not by purified myelin, neuroblastoma or non-brain tissue. Low levels of anti-basic protein antibodies were found in many RAO (but not GPAO) sera by radioimmunoassay, and a few showed significant anti-galactocerebroside antibody by agglutination and radioimmunoprecipation techniques. Guinea pigs sensitized with isolated oligodendrocytes in CFA showed cell-mediated immunity (CMI) to OP as manifested by delayed type skin test and induced in vitro lymphocyte transformation. CMI to purified myelin basic protein was not detected. The demonstration of humoral and CMI to the cell responsible for the production of CNS myelin may be related to some aspects of the immunopathogenesis of demyelinating disorders.
