Molecular mimicry and immune-mediated diseases

Michael B. A. Oldstone
1998 The FASEB Journal  
For our purpose, molecular mimicry is defined as similar structures shared by molecules from dissimilar genes or by their protein products.  ...  An immune response against the determinant shared by the host and virus can evoke a tissue-specific immune response that is presumably capable of eliciting cell and tissue destruction.  ...  Antibodies to the human AChR a-subunit bound to herpes simplex virus-infected cells.  ...
