  1. Frequent occurrence of anti-tRNAHis autoantibodies that recognize a conformational epitope in sera of patients with myositis.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To investigate the incidence of autoantibodies directed to deproteinized transfer RNAHis (tRNAHis) in anti-Jo-1 positive myositis patients and to determine the major B cell epitope.

    Methods

    One hundred sixty-seven myositis sera were screened by immunoblotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the presence of anti-Jo-1 antibody.

    Autoantibodies directed to deproteinized RNA were detected by immunoprecipitation.

    Ribonuclease cleavage experiments were performed to determine the tRNAHis-specific features important for recognition.

    Results

    Approximately one-third of the anti-Jo-1 positive sera also contained autoantibodies recognizing tRNAHis.

    This recognition was independent of modified bases, but the presence of stabilizing Mg2+ions appeared to be essential for efficient immunoprecipitation.

    Transfer RNAHis-specific features in the anticodon loop were not protected from ribonuclease cleavage by bound antibodies, while protection of bases located in the D and T loops was observed.

    Conclusion

    A significant number of anti-Jo-1 positive myositis sera contain anti-tRNAHis activity.

    Formation of the major autoepitope on tRNAHis is strongly dependent on proper folding of this molecule mediated by an interaction between D and T loops which is stabilized by either modified residues or Mg2+ions.
