Abstract [en]

B10.RIII mice develop chronic and relapsing experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) after immunization with the myelin basic protein (MBP) peptide 89−101. The disease is associated with the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) (eae1). We have now investigated the importance of non−MHC regions for the EAE susceptibility in a cross between RIIIS/J and B10.RIII mice which share the MHC region but differ in disease susceptibility. Linkage analysis using microsatellite markers spanning the genome identified a region (eae2) on chromosome 15 which showed linkage to disease (P=0.0002). Our data also suggest linkage to a second region (eae3) on chromosome 3 (P=0.0024), and provide evidence for locus interactions between eae2 and eae3. These results provide clues to the genetic basis of multiple sclerosis.
