A commentary on
Genomic analysis of ERVWE2 locus in patients with multiple sclerosis: absence of genetic association but potential role of human endogenous retrovirus type W elements in molecular mimicry with myelin antigen

by do Olival, G. S., Faria, T. S., Nali, L. H. S., de Oliveira, A. C. P., Casseb, J., Vidal, J. E., Cavenaghi, V. B., Tilbery, C. P., Moraes, L., Fink, M. C. S., Sumita, L. M., Perron, H., and Romano, C. M. (2013). Front. Microbiol. 4:172. doi: 10.3389/fmicb.2013.00172

The correct sequences of the primers described in this work are HW_MSchX_F-TGGGTGAAGTAAGTCCAACAG and HW_MSchX_R-TGAAGAACGTATCCAGCCTACA. The amplified fragment corresponds to nucleotides 21227–22122 of the human chromosome Xq22.3 (GenBank ID AL390039.10).

Keywords: endogenous retroviruses, multiple sclerosis, MOG, immunopathogeny, genetic association, ERVWE2
