Identification of Multiple Isolated Lymphoid Follicles on the Antimesenteric Wall of the Mouse Small Intestine1
We have revealed that 100–200 clusters, filled with closely packed lymphocytes, can be found throughout the length of the antimesenteric wall of the mouse small intestine. They are composed of aExpand

NALT- versus PEYER'S-patch-mediated mucosal immunity
Recent studies indicate that the mechanism of nasopharynx-associated lymphoid tissue (NALT) organogenesis is different from that of other lymphoid tissues. NALT has an important role in the inductionExpand

Terminology: nomenclature of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue
Stimulation of mucosal immunity has great potential in vaccinology and immunotherapy. However, the mucosal immune system is more complex than the systemic counterpart, both in terms of anatomyExpand

Uptake through glycoprotein 2 of FimH+ bacteria by M cells initiates mucosal immune response
The mucosal immune system forms the largest part of the entire immune system, containing about three-quarters of all lymphocytes and producing grams of secretory IgA daily to protect the mucosalExpand

Toll-like receptor-dependent production of IL-12p40 causes chronic enterocolitis in myeloid cell-specific Stat3-deficient mice.
Stat3 plays an essential role in IL-10 signaling pathways. A myeloid cell-specific deletion of Stat3 resulted in inflammatory cytokine production and development of chronic enterocolitis withExpand

CCR7 Is Critically Important for Migration of Dendritic Cells in Intestinal Lamina Propria to Mesenteric Lymph Nodes1
Although dendritic cells (DCs) located in the small intestinal lamina propria (LP-DCs) migrate to mesenteric lymph nodes (MLNs) constitutively, it is unclear which chemokines regulate theirExpand

Innate Lymphoid Cells Promote Anatomical Containment of Lymphoid-Resident Commensal Bacteria
Protecting Against a Barrier Breach In order to coexist peacefully, a “firewall” exists that keeps the commensal bacteria that reside in our intestines and associated lymphoid tissue contained.Expand

Regulation of humoral and cellular gut immunity by lamina propria dendritic cells expressing Toll-like receptor 5
The intestinal cell types responsible for defense against pathogenic organisms remain incompletely characterized. Here we identify a subset of CD11chiCD11bhi lamina propria dendritic cells (LPDCs)Expand

RANKL Is Necessary and Sufficient to Initiate Development of Antigen-Sampling M Cells in the Intestinal Epithelium1
Microfold cells (M cells) are specialized epithelial cells situated over Peyer’s patches (PP) and other organized mucosal lymphoid tissues that transport commensal bacteria and other particulate AgsExpand

Intestinal villous M cells: an antigen entry site in the mucosal epithelium.
M cells located in the follicle-associated epithelium of Peyer's patches (PP) are shown to be the principal sites for the sampling of gut luminal antigens. Thus, PP have long been considered theExpand
