Effect of sera from AChR-antibody negative myasthenia gravis patients on AChR and MuSK in cell cultures.

Abstract

A proportion of patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) do not have antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor (AChR). Some of these patients have antibodies to muscle specific kinase (MuSK), whereas others have neither antibody (seronegative MG, SNMG). Both MuSK antibody positive MG (MuSK-MG) and SNMG are antibody-mediated diseases but how they cause… (More)
