T cells that produce both IL-17 and IFN-γ, and co-express ROR-γt and T-bet, are often found at sites of autoimmune inflammation. However, it is unknown whether this co-expression of T-bet with ROR-γt is a prerequisite for immunopathology. We show here that T-bet is not required for the development of Th17-driven experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis(More)
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) often used as a model for the early inflammatory stages of multiple sclerosis and also as a model of organ-specific autoimmune disease.This protocol describes the induction of passive EAE in mice, either using T cells isolated from mice primed with(More)
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) depends on the initial activation of CD4+ T cells responsive to myelin autoantigens. The key antigen presenting cell (APC) population that drives the activation of naïve T cells most efficiently is the dendritic cell (DC). As such, we should be able to trigger EAE by transfer of DC that can present the(More)
