Spontaneous Autoimmunity in Mice: Antibodies to Nucleoprotein in Strain A/J.


An antibody to nucleoprotein, which appears to be an autoantibody, occurs in the gamma-globulin fraction of serum from mice of the A/J strain. This antibody combines with nucleoprotein of several species but not with calf thymus DNA. The frequency of its occurrence increases with age and is greater in females.
