The severity of infection with Streptococcus pyogenes is strongly influenced by the host's genetics. This observation extends to the murine model of streptococcal infection, where the background of the mouse strain determines the infection outcome (BALB/c are resistant, whereas C3H/HeN are susceptible). To determine the extent to which the MHC complex (H2) contributed to diseases susceptibility, the response to S. pyogenes of congenic BALB mice from a resistant background (BALB/c), but carrying… CONTINUE READING
