H-/K-Ras and N-Ras isoforms were proposed to lack functional specificities due to similarity in 1–165 amino acids. As recent studies implied Ras isoform-specific developmental effects, we examined their functional specificity using Leishmania major infection, anti-hapten antibody response and carrier-specific T cell response. While N-Ras overexpression increased L. major infection in resistant C57BL/6 mice, H-Ras or K-Ras overexpression reduced the infection in susceptible BALB/c mice. These Ras isoforms differentially regulated anti-TNP antibody response in TNP-Ova-primed, but not in TNP-Ficoll- or TNP-LPS-primed, BALB/c mice. Ras isoform-specific silencing selectively modulated Ova-specific T cell response. The data indicate Ras isoform-specific regulation of antigen-specific immune response.
