Maturation and selection of high-affinity B cell clones in the germinal center (GC) relies on support from T follicular helper (T(FH)) cells. T(FH) cells are characterized by their localization to the B cell follicle and their high expression of the costimulatory molecules ICOS and PD1 and the cytokine IL-21, which promotes immunoglobulin (Ig) class(More)
The Foxo transcription factors (Foxo1, Foxo3, Foxo4) modulate cell fate decisions in diverse systems. Here we show that Foxo1-dependent gene expression was critical at multiple stages of B cell differentiation. Early deletion of Foxo1 caused a severe block at the pro-B cell stage, due to a failure to express interleukin 7 receptor α (IL-7Rα). Foxo1(More)
