Autoantibodies to nAChR are found in 85% of patients with Myasthenia Gravis (seropositive) while in 15% of them the standard immunoprecipitation test for anti-AChR is negative (seronegative). Some of these seronegative patients have antibodies against muscle specific Kinase ( MuSK). The aim of this study is to try to define auto-antibodies against protein different from AChR and MuSK in seronegative patients. We used the cell line TE671, that expresses human AChR. Through our proteomic approach we identified some proteins that could represent potential antigens different from AChR and MuSK.

Abstract

Autoantibodies to nAChR are found in 85% of patients with Myasthenia Gravis (seropositive) while in 15% of them the standard immunoprecipitation test for anti-AChR is negative (seronegative). Some of these seronegative patients have antibodies against muscle specific Kinase ( MuSK). The aim of this study is to try to define auto-antibodies against protein different from AChR and MuSK in seronegative patients. We used the cell line TE671, that expresses human AChR. Through our proteomic approach we identified some proteins that could represent potential antigens different from AChR and MuSK.
