Characterization of the B cell response of patients with anti-liver cytosol autoantibodies in type 2 autoimmune hepatitis.

Abstract

Anti-liver cytosol type 1 (LC1) autoantibody is detected in 30% of sera from patients with type 2 autoimmune hepatitis (AIH), and is the only circulating autoantibody in 10% of cases. Human formiminotransferase cyclodeaminase (FTCD) has been shown to be the specific liver antigen recognized by anti-LC1 autoantibodies. The aim of this study was to identify… (More)
