Abstract

Analysis of the V(H)DJ(H) repertoire of peripheral blood IgM+ B cells from a patient with X-linked hyper-IgM syndrome (X-HIgM) was undertaken to determine whether the distribution of V(H) families in the productive repertoire might be regulated by in vivo CD40-CD154 interactions. The distribution of V(H) genes in the non-productive repertoire of IgM+ B cells was comparable in X-HIgM and normals. Unlike the normal productive V(H) repertoire, however, in the X-HIgM patient the V(H)4 family was found at almost the same frequency as the V(H)3 family. This reflected a diminution in the positive selection of the V(H)3 family observed in normals and the imposition of positive selection of the V(H)4 family in the X-HIgM patient. Unique among the V(H)3 genes, V(H)3-23/DP-47 was positively selected in both normals and the X-HIgM patient. No major differences in the usage of J(H) or D segments or the complementarity-determining region (CDR) 3 were noted, although the foreshortening of the CDR3 noted in the mutated V(H) rearrangements of normals was absent in the X-HIgM patient. Finally, a minor degree of somatic hypermutation was noted in the X-HIgM patient. These results have suggested that specific influences on the composition of the V(H) repertoire in normals require CD40-CD154 interactions.
