Based on the above results, pGH internalization peaked at 60 min; thus, in the following experiment, porcine hepatocytes were stimulated with pGH (100ng/mL) for 60min, followed by an anti-pGH antibody; a 12nm Gold-conjugated second antibody was used to observe pGH subcellular localization by immunoelectron microscopy.

The LAMP sequence causes an antigen, to which it is attached, to be taken up by the lysosomal subcellular compartment of the cell, an action that has been shown to increase presentation on MHC class II molecules, which in turn, can produce greater CD4+ T-cell responses against the antigen and a more potent and longer lasting overall immune response.
