OBJECTIVE To identify self T cell epitopes associated with proinflammatory immune responses and clinically active juvenile dermatomyositis (juvenile DM). The target of our search for relevant epitopes was represented by amino acid sequences shared between human skeletal myosin and Streptococcus pyogenes M5 protein. The long-term objective of the project is… CONTINUE READING
