    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic and systemic autoimmune disease that primarily affects women during the childbearing years. SLE is characterized by the production of autoantibodies against nucleic acids and their interacting proteins. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Linkage in the 2q37 region was evaluated using microsatellite markers in multi-case families from Sweden, Iceland and Norway. Both the two-point and the multipoint linkage analysis show highly significant LOD scores (Z=4.51 and 6.03, respectively). LÄS MER

  4. 4. The genetics of systemic lupus erythematosus : Mapping of susceptibility loci for human SLE

    Författare :Anna-Karin B. Lindqvist; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Systemic lupus erythematosus; complex diseases; genetic susceptibility; linkage analysis; genome scan; candidate gene; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik; Medical Genetics; medicinsk genetik;

    Sammanfattning : Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a systemic autoimmune disease affecting organs such as skin, jointsand kidneys. Characteristic for the disease is increased production of autoantibodies, in particular against dsDNA. Previous studies of SLE in mouse models and in humans indicate polygenic inheritance and genetic heterogeneity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Genetics of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus : The Specificity of IRF5 to SLE

    Författare :MV Prasad Linga Reddy; Marta Alarcön Riquelme; Dan Holmberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Molecular genetics; Systemic lupus erythematosus; Interferon regulatory factor 5; Transmission-Disequilibrium Test; Family-based association test; Linkage Disequilibrium; Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium; Genetik;

    Sammanfattning : The breakdown of self-tolerance is the main driving force behind susceptibility to SLE. When this occurs, T and B cells are activated in an uncontrolled manner and produce autoantibodies against self fragmented DNA, RNA and sometimes other parts of the cell such as cardiolipin, phosphatidylserine, etc. LÄS MER
