    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Superantigen; X-ray Crystallography; T cell receptor; Major histocompatibility complex;

    Abstract : Superantigens (SAgs) are toxins capable of inducing a massive immune response, leading to severe disease. They are secreted by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes, which produce the staphylococcal enterotoxins and streptococcal pyogenic exotoxins, respectively. READ MORE

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Genetisk påverkan i ledgångsreumatism Ett väl fungerande immunsystem är en förutsättning för kroppens kamp mot diverse sjukdomar orsakade av t ex virus och bakterier. En grundläggande egenskap hos immunsystemet är dess förmåga att skilja på vad som är kroppens egna celler och molekyler och vad som är främmande. READ MORE

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that leads to degradation of cartilage and bone mainly in peripheral joints. In collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), a mouse model for RA, activation of autoimmune CD4+ T cells depends on a molecular recognition system where T-cell receptors (TCRs) recognize a complex between the class II MHC Aq protein and CII259-273, a glycopeptide epitope from type II collagen (CII).
