Systemic lupus erythematosus (sle) is a highly heterogeneous disease with limited therapeutic options, where clinical manifestations are the result of activation of innate and adaptive immune mechanisms the elucidation of these mechanisms is critical for identifying novel therapeutic targets and agents. Although the present study used a genetic model to induce nuclear alterations in a lupus-prone genetic background, the relationship between nuclear structure and the development of anti-nuclear autoimmunity suggests a fundamental role for cell biology in the elusive non-genetic components of sle environmental.
