  • Truncated analog of α-GalCer.
  • iNKT cell glycolipid agonist.
  • Immunosuppressive.
  • Th2 polarizing. Stimulation of NKT with OCH results in release of primarily Th2 cytokine compared to stimulation with α-GalCer, which results in release of a mixture of Th1 and Th2 cytokines.
  • Induces stronger interleukin-4 (IL-4) secretion and weaker interferon-γ (IFN-γ) secretion than α-GalCer both in vitro and in vivo.
  • Inducer of interleukin-10 (IL-10) and suppressor of diabetes.
  • Shown to prevent experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in mice, an animal model of multiple sclerosis.
  • Has beneficial effects on type I diabetes in NOD mice.
  • Suppressor of collagen-induced arthritis.
  • Might be useful for immunotherapy of transplant rejection.
