Novel lymphocyte-independent mechanisms to initiate inflammatory arthritis via bone marrow-derived cells of Ali18 mutant mice.


OBJECTIVE In a large-scale ENU (N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea) mouse mutagenesis programme, we previously have identified and characterized a novel mutation Ali18 that causes inflammatory arthritis like lesions in peripheral joints. In this study, we analysed the immune system of Ali18 mice to understand mechanisms underlying the spontaneous inflammation. METHODS… (More)
