    Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is a heterotetrameric protein assembled from two identical heavy chain (HC) and two identical light chain (LC) polypeptides. The HC and LC folding and assembly are a crucial step for IgG production. It is affected by the ratio of HC to LC expression (HC:LC). To date, the...

    Glatiramer acetate (GA) previously known as Copolymer 1 (Cop 1), a synthetic amino acid copolymer, suppresses experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and shows a beneficial effect in relapsing-remitting type of multiple sclerosis (MS). GA acts as a specific immunomodulator by binding to...
