The mechanism of CD40 ligand (CD40L)-mediated in vivo activation of CD4(+) T cells was examined by investigation of the development of experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE) in CD40L-deficient mice that carried a transgenic T cell receptor specific for myelin basic protein. These mice failed to develop EAE after priming with antigen, and CD4(+) T(More)
To analyse the effects of TGF-beta in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), we have developed non-obese diabetic (NOD) transgenic mice expressing TGF-beta under the control of the rat insulin II promoter. Pancreata of TGF-beta transgenic mice were roughly one twentieth of the size of pancreata of wild-type NOD mice and showed small clusters of(More)
Lately, TNF alpha has been the focus of studies of autoimmunity; its role in the progression of autoimmune diabetes is, however, still unclear. To analyze the effects of TNF alpha in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), we have generated nonobese diabetic (NOD) transgenic mice expressing TNF alpha under the control of the rat insulin II promoter(More)
Adhesion molecules are believed to facilitate infiltration of leukocytes into the CNS of mice with experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE). The role of the adhesion molecule CD62L (L-selectin) in the immunopathology of EAE is not known. To study this, we crossed CD62L-deficient mice with myelin basic protein-specific TCR (MBP-TCR) transgenic mice.(More)
Lately, TNFoL has been the focus of studies of autoimmunity; its role in the progression of auto immune diabetes is, however, still unclear. To analyze the effects o f TNFoL in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), we have generated nonobese diabetic (NOD) transgenic mice expressing TNFe¢ under the control o f the rat insulin II p romotor (RIP).
