Specific IgM and IgG responses to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis produced in resistant and susceptible mice during experimental paracoccidioidomycosis were examined by the immunoblotting procedure. Sera from infected mice recognized 51 antigen bands with apparent molecular masses from 8 to 86 kD. Sixteen of these were defined as major antigen bands because of almost universal presence of antibodies to them, and their intense staining. All sera, including those from normal control mice, tested for both IgM and IgG antibody reacted with the major E antigen which appeared as a large diffuse band from 43 to 47 kD. Comparisons between resistant and susceptible mice showed some significant differences in IgM responses to many antigen bands. While IgG responses were quite similar for both strains, differences were apparent in the response to the antigens at 62 and 68 kD.
