Autoimmunity can develop from an often undetermined interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Rare forms of autoimmune conditions may also result from single gene mutations as for autoimmune polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy, an autosomal recessive disease associated with mutated forms of the

Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a pleiotropic lipid mediator that promotes motility, survival, and the synthesis of chemokines/cytokines such as interleukin-8 (IL-8) and interleukin-6 by human fibroblast-like synoviocytes from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RAFLS). In those cells LPA was reported to
