Title:
Human scleroderma sera contain autoantibodies to protein components specific to the U3 small nucleolar RNP complex. 
Abstract:
OBJECTIVE: To determine whether antifibrillarin autoantibodies in scleroderma patients are associated with autoantibodies to protein components specific for U3 small nucleolar RNP (U3 snoRNP). METHODS: Sera from 220 scleroderma patients were examined for antinucleolar autoantibodies (ANoA) and for antibodies to fibrillarin and the U3 snoRNP-specific proteins Mpp10 and hU3-55K. Clinical correlates were determined for the different autoantibody specificities. RESULTS: Fifty-nine of the 220 patient...    »
