Quantitative Trait Locus Analysis Implicates CD4⁺/CD44high Memory T Cells in the Pathogenesis of Murine Autoimmune Pancreatitis.

The mouse strain MRL/MpJ is prone to spontaneously develop autoimmune pancreatitis (AIP). To elucidate the genetic control towards the development of the phenotype and to characterize contributions of immunocompetent cell types, MRL/MpJ mice were interbred with three additional strains (BXD2/TYJ, NZ...
