Endothelial cells require miR-214 to secrete exosomes that suppress senescence and induce angiogenesis in human and mouse endothelial cells.
Signaling between endothelial cells, endothelial progenitor cells, and stromal cells is crucial for the establishment and maintenance of vascular integrity and involves exosomes, among otherExpand

High-dimensional single cell analysis identifies stem-like cytotoxic CD8+ T cells infiltrating human tumors
CD8+ T cells infiltrating tumors are largely dysfunctional, but whether a subset maintains superior functionality remains ill defined. By high-dimensional single cell analysis of millions of CD8+ TExpand

Modulation of the CD4(+) T cell response after acellular pertussis vaccination in the presence of TLR4 ligation.
Whole cell pertussis (wP) vaccines are gradually being replaced by aluminum salt-adjuvanted acellular pertussis (aP) vaccines. These promote CD4(+) T cell responses with a non-protective Th2Expand

Roads to the development of improved pertussis vaccines paved by immunology
Current acellular pertussis vaccines have various shortcomings, which may contribute to their suboptimal efficacy and waning immunity in vaccinated populations. This calls for the development of newExpand

Molecular Signatures of the Evolving Immune Response in Mice following a Bordetella pertussis Infection
Worldwide resurgence of pertussis necessitates the need for improvement of pertussis vaccines and vaccination strategies. Since natural infections induce a longer-lasting immunity than vaccinations,Expand

Transcriptome signature for dampened Th2 dominance in acellular pertussis vaccine-induced CD4+ T cell responses through TLR4 ligation
Current acellular pertussis (aP) vaccines promote a T helper 2 (Th2)-dominated response, while Th1/Th17 cells are protective. As our previous study showed, after adding a non-toxic TLR4 ligand,Expand

The Single-Cell Phenotypic Identity of Human CD8+ and CD4+ T Cells.
On antigen encounter, naïve CD8+ and CD4+ T cells differentiate into a large number of effector cells that migrate to inflamed tissues to fight infections or tumors. Following elimination of theExpand

Bordetella pertussis outer membrane vesicle vaccine confers equal efficacy in mice with milder inflammatory responses compared to a whole-cell vaccine
The demand for improved pertussis vaccines is urgent due to the resurgence of whooping cough. A deeper understanding of the mode of action of pertussis vaccines is required to achieve thisExpand

Immunological Signatures after Bordetella pertussis Infection Demonstrate Importance of Pulmonary Innate Immune Cells
Effective immunity against Bordetella pertussis is currently under discussion following the stacking evidence of pertussis resurgence in the vaccinated population. Natural immunity is more effectiveExpand

Molecular and cellular signatures underlying superior immunity against Bordetella pertussis upon pulmonary vaccination
Mucosal immunity is often required for protection against respiratory pathogens but the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms of induction remain poorly understood. Here, systems vaccinologyExpand
