Restricted junctional diversity of T cell receptor delta gene rearrangements expressed in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients.


SLE is an autoimmune connective tissue disorder affecting multiple organs, in which T cells may play a central role. This study investigated T cell receptor (TCR) gamma/delta repertoire expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) of SLE patients and healthy individuals using variable (V) gene family-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR… (More)
