OBJECTIVE The chemokine receptor CXCR6 is highly expressed on lymphocytes isolated from the synovium of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or juvenile idiopathic arthritis, suggesting that CXCR6 regulates immune cell activation or infiltration into arthritic joints. This study was undertaken to examine the role of CXCR6 in T cell(More)
Natural killer T (NKT) cells are a specialized subset of T lymphocytes that regulate immune responses in the context of autoimmunity, cancer, and microbial infection. Lipid antigens derived from bacteria, parasites, and fungi can be presented by CD1d molecules and recognized by the canonical T cell receptors on NKT cells. Alternatively, NKT cells can be(More)
CCR4 and CXCR3 are expressed on several T-cell subsets in inflamed tissues, yet their role in tissue-specific recruitment is unclear. We examined the contributions of CCR4 and CXCR3 to T-cell recruitment into inflamed joints in collagen-induced arthritis, antigen-draining lymph nodes (LNs) and dermal inflammatory sites (poly I:C, LPS, concanavalin A, and(More)
Natural killer T (NKT) cells are glycolipid-reactive T lymphocytes that function in immunosurveillance and immune regulation. However, reduced tumor control in NKT cell-deficient Jα18(-/-) mice may be confounded by an overall reduction in T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire diversity in these animals. Mechanistic studies are also hindered by a lack of tools to(More)
