Distribution of antigenicity in chicken erythrocyte histone H5.


We have compared the inhibitory strengths of eight peptides from chicken histone H5 to that of the parent protein (189 residues) in complement fixation by guinea pig anti-H5 serum complexed with the homologous histone. Two precisely delineated regions (residues 59 to 65 and 94 to 99) and two less-defined regions (between 66 and 93; 100 and 189) are depicted. The sequences of particular consequences are quite conserved in avian histone H5 while the most variable N-terminal portion of 31 residues has no inhibitory effect.
