Role of gender and strain in vomitoxin-induced dysregulation of IgA production and IgA nephropathy in the mouse.

Abstract

Prolonged dietary exposure of female B6C3F1 mice to the trichothecene vomitoxin results in hyperproduction of immunoglobulin A (IgA) with a concurrent immunopathology that mimics human IgA nephropathy. To assess the role of gender and strain in the mouse model, semipurified AIN-76A diet containing 25 ppm vomitoxin was fed to B6C3F1 male mice and to B6C3F1… (More)
