Impairment of organ-specific T cell negative selection by diabetes susceptibility genes: genomic analysis by mRNA profiling
BACKGROUND T cells in the thymus undergo opposing positive and negative selection processes so that the only T cells entering circulation are those bearing a T cell receptor (TCR) with a low affinity for self. The mechanism differentiating negative from positive selection is poorly understood, despite the fact that inherited defects in negative selection underlie organ-specific autoimmune disease in AIRE-deficient people and the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse strain RESULTS Here we use...[Show more]
