Antibody production to the liver-specific F antigen was tested in recombinant strains of mice of different H-2 types to determine whether a histocompatibility-linked immune response (Ir) gene controlled responsiveness to this antigen. Responseiveness was found to be controlled by an Ir gene located in the K end (K and/or I-A subregions) of the H-2 complex.
