Female SJL/N, A.SW, B10.S (H-2s), BALB/C, DBA/2 (H-2d), A.TL and B10. TL (H-2t1) mice were treated with sc injections of 1.0 mg CH3HgCl/kg body weight every third day for 4 weeks. Controls were given sterile, isotonic NaCl. CH3HgCl (MeHg) induced in SJL, A.SW and B10.S mice antinucleolar antibodies (ANoA) targeting the nucleolar 34-kDa protein fibrillarin. The susceptibility to develop ANoA in response to MeHg was linked to the mouse major histocompatibility complex (H-2), since H-2s but not H… CONTINUE READING
