The idiotypes (Ids) of anticentromere antibodies (ACA) have been studied using a fusion protein obtained from cloned cDNA of the major centromere antigen, CENP-B, for isolation of the autoantibodies. IgG-ACA were affinity purified from 4 patient sera and anti-Ids prepared in rabbits. Analysis...
La (SS-B) protein is known as one major antigenic target for autoantibodies from patients with certain autoimmune diseases such as Sjoegrens' syndrome or Lupus Erythematosus. La protein belongs to the so called “extractable nuclear antigens”. Here we report that La antigen is not restricted...
The absolute concentrations of mouse immunoglobulin (Ig) heavy chain isotypes were determined by specific ELISAs in the serum of C57BL/6 (B6) mice doubly homozygous at the nude (nu) and the lymphoproliferation (lpr) locus (B6 nu, lpr mice), and compared with normal B6 nu mice. The distribution...
In our experimental model of autoimmune vesiculo-prostatitis, obtained by immunization with syngeneic male accessory glands (MAG) and complete Freund's adjuvant, the presence of specific autoreactive cells with cytotoxic activity against prostate antigens was studied. The specific cytotoxicity...
Systemic lupus erythemdtosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease which involves the basement membranes of blood vessels in multiple organs. An important component of the microvasculature is vascular heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPG). In this study, we investigated the presence in SLE and other...
Elevated constitutive expression of major histocompatability (MHC) class II antigens occurs in the enterocytes of patients with IBD. It has been suggested that this aberrant expression of class II molecules may play a role in the pathogenesis of IBD. We examined two possible reasons for such a...
This paper describes the idiotypic specificities of eight murine monoclonal antibodies directed to three independent epitopes on retinal S-antigen. The antigenic sites recognised by these monoclonal antibodies have previously been localised to a small region near the C-terminal of bovine...
