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. Responsiveness 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.
