Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG35-55) Induced Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis (EAE) in C57BL/6 Mice Stefan Bittner1,2, Ali M. Afzali1, Heinz Wiendl1, Sven G. Meuth1,3 1Department of Neurology, University of Münster, 2Interdisciplinary Center for Clinical Research (IZKF), Münster, 3Institute of Physiology – Neuropathophysiology, University of Münster Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an established animal model of multiple sclerosis. C57BL/6 mice are immunized with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) peptide 35-55 (MOG35-55), resulting in an ascending flaccid paralysis caused by autoreactive immune cells in the central nervous system. Protocols for disease induction and monitoring will be discussed.
