RNA interference RNAi is a recently characterized gene silencing pathway by which specific mRNAs are either degraded or translationally suppressed. In a recent issue of Arthritis Research and Therapy Andrew Jakymiw and colleagues reported that the enigmatic Su autoantigen complex contains key components of the RNAi machinery. Anti-Su autoantibodies from both human patients with rheumatic diseases and a mouse model of autoimmunity recognize the endonucleolytic Argonaute and Dicer proteins both crucial enzymes of the RNAi pathway. These data raise the question of how the anti-Su response is triggered. So far it is unknown whether molecular modifications may be involved as has been proposed for other intracellular autoantigens. The implication of RNAi in anti-viral defence may suggest a role for virus infection in this process. Many key regulators of gene expression were previously shown to be targeted by the immune system in a variety of autoimmune diseases. Patients with systemic autoimmune diseases commonly produce antibodies against specific classes of evolutionarily conserved nucleic acid-protein complexes. Most frequently the targeted proteins are either RNA-binding themselves or associated with RNA-binding proteins rather than proteins associated with .
