Abstract

Humoral immune responses are traditionally characterized by determining the presence and quality of Abs specific for certain Ags. Arraying of large numbers of Ags allows the parallel measurement of Abs, generating patterns called Ab profiles. Functional characterization of these Abs could help draw an even more informative map of an immune response. To generate functional Ab profiles we simultaneously tested not only IgM, IgG, and IgA binding to, but also complement activation by, a panel of endogenous and exogenous Ags printed as microarrays, using normal and autoimmune human sera. We show that complement activation by a particular Ag in a given individual cannot be predicted by the measurement of Ag-specific Abs, despite a general correlation between the amount of Ag-bound Ab and the deposited C3 fragments. This is due to both differences in the isotypes that dominate in the recognition of an Ag and individual variations for a given isotype, resulting in altered complement activation potential. Thus, Ag-specific C3 deposition can be used as an additional parameter in immune response monitoring. This is exemplified by comparing the coordinates of Ags, used for the diagnosis of systemic lupus erythematosus, of normal and autoimmune serum samples in a two-dimensional space derived from C3 deposition and Ab binding. Since cleavage fragments of C3 mediate important immunological processes, we propose that measurement of their deposition on Ag microarrays, in addition to Ab profiling, can provide useful functional signature about the tested serum.
