Female SNF(1) hybrid mice spontaneously develop an immune complex-mediated glomerulonephritis as early as 24 weeks of age, whereas the disease onset in males is much slower. Further, a rise in concentration of glomerulus-specific autoantibodies via autoreactive B cells is critical to progression of the disease in this strain. Environmental factors(More)
BACKGROUND Untreated, more than 95% of female SWR x NZB: F(1) (SNF(1)) mice spontaneously develop a fatal lupus-like glomerulonephritis by 8 months-of-age, while disease onset in males is much slower. METHODS : Timed-pregnant SNF(1) mice (10 per treatment) were exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) on gestational day (GD) 12 by oral(More)
Pregnant C57BL/6 mice were exposed to 5 microg/kg 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) or vehicle by oral gavage between gestation days (GDs) 11 and 13. The thymus, spleen, and liver of the pups were examined histologically, and cell surface antigen expression was assessed on postnatal days (PNDs) 1, 14, 25, and 46. In addition to the expected(More)
