Mouse models of peripheral demyelinating neuropathy play an important role in enabling the study ofdisease pathogenesis. Further, induction in transgenic mice allows for the precise interrogation of diseasemechanisms, as well as the analysis of the efficacy and mechanisms of potential new therapies. Here wedescribe a method to successfully induce experimental autoimmune neuritis (EAN) using myelin proteinzero (P0)180–199 peptide in combination with Freund’s complete adjuvant and pertussis toxin in theC57BL/6 mouse strain. We also outline a sensitive paradigm of accurately assessing the extent of functionaldeficits occurring in murine EAN.
