OBJECTIVE Granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is a potent inflammatory mediator that is responsible for recruitment and activation of innate immune cells. Recent data from murine studies have identified Th17 cells as a key source of GM-CSF and suggest that T cell-derived GM-CSF is instrumental in the induction of autoimmune disease.(More)
The maintenance of FOXP3 expression in CD25(hi) regulatory T cells (Tregs) is crucial to the control of inflammation and essential for successful Treg transfer therapies. Coexpression of CD25 and FOXP3 in combination with a hypomethylated region within the FOXP3 gene, called the Treg-specific demethylated region (TSDR), is considered the hallmark of stable(More)
