Immunization of mice with the self-peptide ACBP coupled to keyhole limpet hemocyanin

Keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) is a glycosylated multi-subunit metalloprotein that elicits a strong nonspecific immune activation, thus inducing both cellular and humoral immune responses. The exceptional immunogenicity of this protein can be leveraged to vaccinate mice against self-antigens that otherwise would not induce an autoimmune response. This protocol describes the covalent conjugation of KLH with … Read more
