Possible role of microbial IgG Fc-binding proteins in rheumatoid arthritis

Abstract

IgG Fc binding substances (receptors) are widespread among pathogenic microorganisms. The receptors fromStaphylococcus aureus, streptococci of group A, C and G as well asHerpes-infected cells bind to the interface between the CH2 and CH3 domains i.e. to His 435, Tyr 436 and possibly also His 433 and/or 310. Most rheumatoid factors (RF) from patients with… (More)
