Molecular characterization of the Ro small cytoplasmic RNPS


Ro small cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein particles (Ro scRNPs) react with antibodies from certain autoimmune patients with Sjogren's syndrome and SLE. Ro particles are present in low abundance in most tissues and are thought to consist of an approximately 60kD antigenic protein and 5 small RNAs in human. The biological functions of the Ro scRNPs are not known… (More)
