Ig heavy chain variable region gene complex of lupus mice exhibits normal restriction fragment length polymorphism


B cell hyperactivity, hypergammaglobulinemia, and autoantibody expression, the hallmarks of systemic lupus erythematosus, might be associated with structural abnormalities within the Ig heavy chain variable region (Igh-V) gene complex. The Igh-V loci from several lupus-prone mouse strains, their ancestors, and other nonautoimmune mice were therefore… (More)
