Autoantibodies to 65 kDa glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD65) are produced in many patients with autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type II (APS-II) or stiff-man syndrome (SMS) and are heterogeneous in their epitope specificities, recognizing both conformational and linear determinants. Major linear epitopes of GAD, which are recognized by autoantibodies in a(More)
Glutamic acid decarboxylase-65 (GAD-65) is a major target for autoantibodies and autoreactive T cells in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). Autoantibodies to GAD are also found in patients with stiff man syndrome (SMS) or polyendocrine autoimmunity (PE). The epitope specificities of autoantibodies to GAD in IDDM and SMS have been well(More)
Libraries of random peptides displayed by bacteriophage can be screened to select phage expressing peptides that specifically bind antibodies, so that the peptide sequence motifs expressed by the phage can help to define the epitopes of the antibodies. It is often desirable to screen antibody-selected phage for binding of the selecting antibody in an(More)
