Modulation of protein-protein interactions involved in the immune system by using small molecular mimics of the contact interfaces may lead to the blockage of the autoimmune response and the development of drugs for immunotherapy. The nonpolymorphic beta-regions, exposed to the microenvironment, of the modeled HLA-DQ7, which is genetically linked to(More)
The Ro/La ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex is composed of the proteins Ro60kD, Ro52kD, and La48kD that are in association with one small cytoplasmic RNA (YRNA). Specific protein-RNA and protein-protein interactions are thought to occur through the RNP and zinc-finger secondary structure elements of the Ro60kD protein. The aim of our study was to investigate(More)
T-cell epitopes are important components of the inappropriate response of the immune system to self-proteins in autoimmune diseases. In this study, the candidate T-cell epitopes of the La/SSB autoantigen, the main target of the autoimmune response in patients with Sjogren's Syndrome (SS), and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) were predicted using as a(More)
Application of complementary B and T cell epitopes in inducing anti-idiotypic and anti-clonotypic antibodies capable of regulating or suppressing the autoimmune responses in experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis (EAMG), allergic neuritis (EAN) and allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE) has been the stimulus of many research efforts. Studies on the(More)
