    Klemens Ruprecht
    Institute for Virology, Saarland University Hospital, Homburg Saar, Germany
    J Neurovirol 14:143-51. 2008
    ..While this may be due to immunological tolerance of physiologically expressed HERV-W proteins, strategies other than measurement of immune responses will be required to further elucidate the relationship between MSRV/HERV-W and MS...

    Institute of Virology, Saarland University Hospital, Homburg, Germany
    Retrovirology 6:37. 2009
    ..Syncytin-1 and the putative MSRV Env protein have been involved in the pathogenesis of MS. The origin of MSRV and its precise relation to HERV-W were hitherto unknown...

    FEBS Lett 584:3513-8. 2010
    ..BEC1 protein was found to be expressed in T cells and macrophages, the major target cells of HIV-1. Thus, gp120/BEC1 interaction may be involved in HIV-1 life cycle and/or pathogenesis...

    J Neuroimmunol 180:185-92. 2006
    ..These data do not support the hypothesis that EBV could play a role in MS by inducing quantitatively altered EBV-specific CTL responses. Other pathogenic mechanisms for EBV in MS remain to be elucidated...

    J Neurovirol 11:23-33. 2005
    ..This is compatible with a pathophysiological role in MS, but also illustrates the ambivalence of such HERV antigens, which can be expressed in cell-specific patterns, under physiological or pathological conditions...
