Cultured cells of the murine lung carcinoma called line 1 express very low levels of H-2 class I antigens and are resistant to lysis mediated by alloreactive T cells. In order to investigate how the expression of class I antigens affects the in vivo growth of this spontaneous tumor, H-2Dp genes were transferred into line 1 cells. Cloned transfectants that displayed H-2Dp surface antigens were identified using flow cytometry. The transfected H-2Dp antigens appeared normal by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and could also function as excellent targets for T-cell-mediated lysis in vitro. Marked differences in tumorigenicity (defined as tumor growth in immunologically competent hosts) were observed between the Dp transfected cells and untransfected or control transfected line 1 cells in syngeneic mice only if the animals had previously received injections of irradiated Dp transfectants. Expression of Dp antigens did not appreciably affect the growth of line 1 tumors in immunologically naive syngeneic mice or necessarily cause rejection in allogeneic mice. Our in vivo results show that increased expression of class I antigens can reduce the growth of tumors like line 1 that lack all class I antigens. Our results also suggest that increasing class I antigens alone on some spontaneous tumors deficient in expression will not by itself be sufficient for tumor rejection.
