Aicardi-Goutières syndrome: a model disease for systemic autoimmunity.
Dresden, Germany. In Clin Exp Immunol, 31 Jan 2014
Considerable success has been achieved from the analysis of the rare monogenic disorder Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS), an inflammatory encephalopathy that clinically resembles in-utero-acquired viral infection and that also shares features with SLE.
Assessment of interferon-related biomarkers in Aicardi-Goutières syndrome associated with mutations in TREX1, RNASEH2A, RNASEH2B, RNASEH2C, SAMHD1, and ADAR: a case-control study.
Manchester, United Kingdom. In Lancet Neurol, Dec 2013
BACKGROUND: Aicardi-Goutières syndrome (AGS) is an inflammatory disorder caused by mutations in any of six genes (TREX1, RNASEH2A, RNASEH2B, RNASEH2C, SAMHD1, and ADAR).
Gammadelta T cells: innately adaptive immune cells?
Cambridge, United States. In Int Rev Immunol, Jun 2013
T cells employ a cell surface heterodimeric molecule, the T cell receptor (TCR), to recognize specific antigens (Ags) presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules and carry out adaptive immune responses.
