The strain distribution pattern of five different post-thymectomy autoimmune diseases was determined in 21 inbred and two congenic, resistant strains of mice. The results indicated that susceptibility genes outside the H-2 complex may be involved in the development of localized autoimmune diseases in neonatally thymectomized mice. Studies of recombinant inbred strains also showed that susceptibility to gastritis was not associated with the H-2 haplotype but appeared to be influenced by a minor… CONTINUE READING
