Biased expression of T cell receptor genes characterizes activated T cells in multiple sclerosis cerebrospinal fluid.

Abstract

To better characterize the inflammatory response that occurs in the nervous system in multiple sclerosis (MS), T-cell receptor (TCR) gene expression was quantified from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cells of 21 patients with active disease. Unstimulated CSF cells expressed each of 22 different TCR beta chain variable region (V beta) gene families in proportion… (More)
