Antibodies to recombinant synaptotagmin and calcium channel subtypes in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome.

Abstract

Several proteins have been postulated as possible targets of immune attack in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS). Heterogeneity of autoantibodies in sera from 20 LEMS patients was studied by comparing their reactivity to synaptotagmin, a synaptic vesicle protein, and voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs). Six patients' sera (1 with small cell lung… (More)
