Abstract

We utilized HLA transgenic mice to identify the dominant epitopes on the human (H)-AChR α subunit. The cytoplasmic H-AChR peptide α320-337 was the dominant T cell epitope for DQ8, DR3, and DQ8XDQ6 F1 mice. The H-AChR-immunized HLA-DQ8, DR3, DQ8XDR3 F1 and DQ8XDQ6 F1 mice developed clinical EAMG, whereas HLA-DQ6 mice were less susceptible.
