Multistep pathogenesis of autoimmune disease

Goodnow, Christopher

Description

In the immune system, many tolerance checkpoints exist to prevent self-antigens from stimulating the relentless growth of self-reactive B and T lymphocytes. The genes and molecular pathways underpinning these checkpoints overlap with those involved in tumor suppression.
