The present study was aimed at analyzing the state of tolerance in Tg mice expressing hen egg lysozyme (HEL) under control of the rhodopsin promoter. (More)
PURPOSE To examine the hypothesis that RPE65, a protein specific to the retinal pigment epithelium, is uveitogenic in rats. METHODS Rats of four inbred strains (Lewis, Brown Norway, Fischer, and SHR) were immunized with native or recombinant bovine RPE65, or with S-antigen (S-Ag), emulsified with complete Freund adjuvant, and treated simultaneously with(More)
