No bias in the TCR β chain repertoire of naïve TCRVα chain transgenics at baseline or in a primary response in a DLN at Day 10 post-immunization as demonstrated by spectratype analysis. TCR β chain repertoire by spectratype analysis of (A) naïve TCRα transgenic and littermate control splenocytes and (B) primed DLNs at Day 10 post immunization with PLP 56 to 70 in CFA. V region specific primers were used in combination with a FAM labeled constant region primer to amplify TCRβ chain sequences from T cell cDNA templates. Data shown are representative of experiments carried out with 10 TCRα transgenic and 10 littermate controls and three independently performed experiments.
