Keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) is a glycosylated multi-subunit metalloprotein that elicits a strong nonspecific immune activation, thus inducing both cellular and humoral immune responses. The exceptional immunogenicity of this protein can be leveraged to vaccinate mice against self-antigens that otherwise would not induce an autoimmune response. This protocol describes the covalent conjugation of KLH with acyl-coenzyme A-binding protein (ACBP), the autovaccination of mice with ACBP-KLH conjugate together with a potent adjuvant, and the detection of the produced anti-ACBP autoantibodies. For complete details on the use and execution of this profile, please refer to Bravo-San Pedro et al. (2019c). © 2021 The Author(s).
