T cell metabolism. The protein LEM promotes CD8⁺ T cell immunity through effects on mitochondrial respiration.
Protective CD8(+) T cell-mediated immunity requires a massive expansion in cell number and the development of long-lived memory cells. Using forward genetics in mice, we identified an orphan protein named lymphocyte expansion ...
Myeloid apolipoprotein E controls dendritic cell antigen presentation and T cell activation.
Cholesterol homeostasis has a pivotal function in regulating immune cells. Here we show that apolipoprotein E (apoE) deficiency leads to the accumulation of cholesterol in the cell membrane of dendritic cells (DC), resulting ...
T-cell reconstitution after thymus xenotransplantation induces hair depigmentation and loss.
Here we present a mouse model for T-cell targeting of hair follicles, linking the pathogenesis of alopecia to that of depigmentation disorders. Clinically, thymus transplantation has been successfully used to treat T-cell ...
Transcription factors early growth response gene (Egr) 2 and 3 control inflammatory responses of tolerant T cells.
INTRODUCTION: Impaired proliferation and production of IL2 are the hallmarks of experimental T cell tolerance. However, in most autoimmune diseases, auto-reactive T cells do not display hyper proliferation, but inflammatory ...
