• unlike wild-type NOD mice, transgenic NOD/LtWehi mice do not develop spontaneous diabetes (J:100232)
• whereas wildtype NOD mice are susceptible to diabetes induction by cyclophosphamide, no transgenic NOD/LtWehi mice became diabetic (defined as blood glucose > 11 mmol/l) after a single cyclophosphamide injection; following a second injection only one of ten developed diabetes, and it was more slowly progressive than in wild-type controls (J:100232)
• pancreata of transgenic NOD/LtWehi mice are almost entirely free of insulitis: 90% of 244 islets from 100-day-old female mice and 98% of 259 islets from 147-day-old males had no cellular infiltration, and the rest exhibited only a minimal degree of insulitis (J:100232)
• the transgene does not affect the characteristic susceptibility of NOD mice to sialitis, the degree of which does not differ significantly between transgenic NOD/LtWis mice and control littermates

• spleen- and draining lymph node-derived T cells from wild-type and transgenic NOD/LtWehi mice exhibit statistically similar in vitro proliferative responses to peptides derived from proinsulin and GAD2 (GAD65) following immunization with these self antigens
