Abstract

We performed microarray analysis of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and detected a profile of immune cell activation, autoantigen upregulation, and enhanced E2F pathway transcription. Accordingly, E2f1-deficient mice manifested only mild disability upon induction of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). Furthermore, PBMCs from Avonex-treated patients had lower expression of E2F targets. The profile was enriched in genes known to harbor MS-associated polymorphisms, or localized to MS susceptibility chromosomal regions. Our study shows that PBMC microarrays reflect MS pathobiology that can be validated in the EAE model.
