Abstract: Da MEDLINE: Previous work from our laboratory demonstrated that a synthetic heptapeptide (Ch7), corresponding to a conserved sequence of HIV core protein p24 (aa 232-238), was able to specifically abrogate antigen-induced responses in cultures of normal human peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL). In the present study we show that Ch7 did not inhibit the induction of IFN-gamma-secreting cells nor the accumulation of IFN-gamma mRNA in antigen-stimulated cultures. However, delayed addition of recombinant human IFN-gamma to Ch7-suppressed cultures was able to restore fully the capacity to mount an antigen-specific antibody response. Thus, although the Ch7 immunosuppressive effect may not be directly related to a decreased production of IFN-gamma, an increased level of this cytokine is certainly able to counteract the negative effect of the peptide
