Myasthenia gravis

myasthenia gravis

(Science: disease, neurology) The characteristic feature of the disease is easy fatigue of certain voluntary muscle groups on repeated use. Muscles of the face or upper trunk are especially likely to be affected. In most and perhaps all cases due to the development of autoantibodies against the acetylcholine receptor in neuromuscular junctions. Immunisation of mice or rats with this receptor protein leads to a disease with the features of myasthenia.
