Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disorder characterized by the production of anti-nuclear antibodies. The etiology of SLE is unknown, although several viruses including the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) have been implicated. An increase in the frequency of EBV infection has been observed in SLE patients relative to normal individuals.(More)
Mice transgenic for the R4A-Cmu heavy chain of an anti-dsDNA antibody, maintain tolerance by anergy and deletion. In C57BL/6 mice overexpressing CD19, a molecule, which lowers the threshold for B cell activation, elevated levels of serum autoantibodies have been observed. In the present study, we wished to determine whether CD19 overexpression could alter(More)
One mechanism by which anti-double stranded (ds) DNA B cells are regulated is anergy. Multiple phenotypes have been attributed to anergic B cells in various transgenic models. Differences in the nature of the antigen and in the avidity of antigen-antibody interactions may account for these variations in phenotype. In the present study we describe a(More)
