A fundamental question is what are the molecular determinants that lead to spontaneous preferential targeting of specific autoantigens in autoimmune diseases, such as the insulin B:9–23 peptide sequence in type 1 diabetes. Anti-insulin B:9–23 T cell clones isolated from prediabetic NOD islets have a conserved Vα-segment/Jα-segment, but no...More
