Experimental Protocol

Eight-week-old Lewis rats will be injected at the base of the tail with 100 μl CFA prepared by suspending heat-killed M. tuberculosis (Difco) in mineral oil at 10 mg/ml. For determining the clinical outcomes, we will measure starting day +9 the ankle diameter and score all paws on a scale of 0–4 for degree of swelling, redness, and deformity of the joints. For drug therapy, we will randomly divide the rats into two groups. Rats in the first group will be treated daily (starting on day +1 after AIA induction) with oral FTS (100 mg/kg). Rats in the second group of control Rats will receive only the oral vehicle CMC control (0.5% carboxymethyl cellulose). At experiment end, the will be sacrificed and their spleens will be harvested for further testing. Single cell suspensions of spleen will be cultures with HSP65 (AG stimulation) or control media (Med group) for 72 hrs. Immediately thereafter, we will be process the cells for RNA isolation. Total RNA will be extracted and purified using the Direct-zol™ RNA MiniPrep w/ TRI-Reagent kits (Zymo Research Corp.) N= 8 samples ( 2 samples CMC Med, 2 samples CMC AG, 2 samples FTS Med, 2 samples FTS AG
