Genetic lesions in T-cell tolerance and thresholds for autoimmunity

Liston, Adrian; Lesage, Sylvie; Gray, Daniel H D; Boyd, Richard L; Goodnow, Christopher

Description

The cause of common organ-specific autoimmune diseases is poorly understood because of genetic and cellular complexity in humans and animals. Recent advances in the understanding of the mechanisms of the defects underlying autoimmune disease in autoimmune polyendocrinopathy syndrome type 1 and non-obese diabetic mice suggest that failures in central tolerance play a key role in predisposition towards organ-specific autoimmunity. The lessons from such rare monogenic autoimmune disorders and...[Show more]
