Autoreactive T cells to the P3A+ isoform of AChR alpha subunit in myasthenia gravis.

Abstract

In vitro T cell proliferative response to an alternative splicing variant of acetylcholine receptor alpha subunit (AChR alpha) with the P3A exon-encoded region was examined in peripheral blood samples from 28 myasthenia gravis (MG) patients and 14 healthy donors using recombinant fragments and synthetic peptides. T cells responsive to the P3A region… (More)
