A spontaneous model for autoimmune myocarditis using the human MHC molecule HLA-DQ8.

Abstract

Genome-wide analyses have shown that the MHC class II region is the principal locus that confers susceptibility to a number of human autoimmune diseases. Due to the high degree of linkage disequilibrium across the MHC, it has been difficult to dissect the contribution of individual genes to disease susceptibility. As a result, intensive efforts have been… (More)
