The efficacy of two synthetic major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-derived DA (RT1.Aa) 25-mer peptides (residues 56-80 and 96-120) to modulate alloreactivity was tested in Lewis (RT1.A1) responder animals. The DA peptide 56-80, but not peptide 96-120, induced delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH). DTH was significantly reduced by oral feeding of peptide(More)
Diabetic osteoporosis is a metabolic bone disease responsible for global health problems. Hyperglycemia induces osteopenia, increases bone fragility and unbalances the coupling of osteoblasts and osteoclasts. The mechanism is, however, unknown. For the purpose of this study, we hypothesized that hyperglycemia destroys endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis,(More)
