The implications vary because of differences in mode of action; adiponectin regulates hepatic glucose metabolism and has antiinflammatory effects on the vascular wall (4), whereas leptin exhibits systemic effects on appetite and metabolism (3), and the novel adipokines chemerin and cathepsin S affect adipogenesis and atherosclerotic plaque growth and destabilization, respectively (5-7).
The methods depend upon inhibiting invariant chain proteolysis by cathepsin S from class II MHC/invariant chain complexes, thereby reducing the competency of class II MHC molecules for binding antigenic peptides, reducing presentation of antigenic peptides by class II MHC molecules, and suppressing immune responses.
