Anti-DNA antibodies are a major contributor to the pathogenesis associated with the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus in mice and human. The accumulation of a large body of structural information on autoimmune anti-DNA antibodies over the past several years, particularly from mice, has provided considerable insight into the structure,(More)
Spontaneous anti-DNA antibodies in autoimmune mice have the characteristics of antibody produced by Ag-specific, clonally selective B cell stimulation. The nature of the somatically derived antibody V region structures recurrent among spontaneous anti-DNA antibodies suggests that DNA or DNA-protein complexes may provide the antigenic stimulus for autoimmune(More)
Spontaneous anti-DNA antibodies in autoimmune mice have the characteristics of antibodies produced by antigen-specific, clonally selective B cell stimulation. The nature of the somatically derived antibody variable region structures recurrent among spontaneous anti-DNA antibodies suggests that DNA or DNA-protein complexes may provide the antigenic stimulus(More)
The J558 family BW-16 VH gene is closely associated with the autoimmune response to DNA of lupus-prone mice. We have followed the expression of VHBW-16-encoded heavy chains in cDNA libraries prepared from unmanipulated normal (C3H, AKR) and autoimmune (New Zealand Black/New Zealand White F1) mice, and from mice immunized with a highly immunogenic(More)
Important to the immunopathology associated with the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus, is the production of autoantibody to DNA. Crucial to understanding the immunological basis for autoimmunity to DNA is knowing whether the anti-DNA autoantibody is the product of clonally-selective, antigen-specific B cell stimulation or non-selective,(More)
At the time of independence milk production in India was only 17 million tones per annum. Today India has become number one in milk production, producing 127 million tones per annum with approx. 20% of the total milk production is handled by the organized sectors. Dairy and food industries are fast growing industries and day-by-day newer technologies are(More)
