Identification of alpha-fetoprotein as an autoantigen in juvenile Batten disease.

Abstract

Humoral autoimmunity against glutamic acid decarboxylase has been described in juvenile Batten disease patients and in the Cln3(-/-) mouse model. To obtain a more comprehensive understanding of the repertoire of antigens targeted, we examined the reactivity of Cln3(-/-) mouse sera to brain proteins from fetal, postnatal and adult rats. Among the candidate… (More)
