The effect of the beige (bg) mutation on adaptive allogeneic tumor rejection was examined by monitoring tumor cell survival in vivo using [131I]iododeoxyuridine-prelabeled cells. Accelerated elimination of allogeneic tumor cells normally begins 8 days after ip injection and is due to active immune responses. Two independent mutations to beige on two different inbred backgrounds (C57BL/6J bgJ and DBA/2JCo bg8J) were tested, and bg/bg mice showed a 1-day delay in immune elimination of allogeneic cells. This delayed rejection was not due to a defect in clearing label from dead cells, nor to an inability to effect antibody-induced killing in vivo. Both humoral and cell-mediated responses against the allogeneic tumor cells were significantly lower in bg/bg than in +/bg mice.
