There is controversy regarding the possible role of glial cells as APCs in the pathogenesis of central nervous system (CNS) demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis and its animal model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Microglia have been clearly shown to present Ag in the CNS, and due to the proximity of activated astroglial cells(More)
Proteolipid protein (PLP) is a major component of the central nervous system (CNS) myelin membrane and has been shown to induce acute experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in genetically susceptible animals. Here we describe conditions by which a relapsing-remitting form of EAE can be reliably induced in SJL/J mice either actively immunized with(More)
