Staphylococcal enterotoxins (SEs) are one member of a unique group of molecules known as superantigens. They are potent T-cell activators and stimulate a large number of T cells bearing specific T-cell-receptor beta-chain variable regions. It has been proposed that superantigens may trigger autoimmune disorders by stimulation of autoreactive T cells with restricted beta-chain variable-chain usage. We investigated the effects of SEs B and A (SEB and SEA) on the reactivation of experimental… CONTINUE READING
