Expression of melanoma antigen gene by cells from inflamed joints in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine if synovial fluid (SF) cells from inflamed joints of patients with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) express melanoma antigen gene (MAGE) RNA and protein. METHODS The pattern of MAGE-A1 expression was analyzed in inflammatory synovial tissue and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from patients with JRA by… (More)
