Contactin-1 and Neurofascin-155/-186 Are Not Targets of Auto-Antibodies in Multifocal Motor Neuropathy.
 

Author(s): Kathrin Doppler, Luise Appeltshauser, Heidrun H Krämer, Judy King Man Ng, Edgar Meinl, Carmen Villmann, Peter Brophy, Sulayman D Dib-Hajj, Stephen G Waxman, Andreas Weishaupt, Claudia Sommer

Journal:

 

Multifocal motor neuropathy is an immune mediated disease presenting with multifocal muscle weakness and conduction block. IgM auto-antibodies against the ganglioside GM1 are detectable in about 50% of the patients. Auto-antibodies against the paranodal proteins contactin-1 and neurofascin-155 ...
