The regulation of autoantibody production in Heymann's nephritis by T lymphocyte subsets.


The role of T lymphocyte subsets in the regulation of the autoantibody response to renal tubular antigen and the development of Heymann's nephritis (HN) in different rat strains was investigated in the present study. WF rats were highly susceptible to HN induction, PVG rats were moderately susceptible, whereas DA and BN were resistant. The induction of an… (More)
