Dendritic cells (DCs) retrovirally transduced with IL-4 have recently been shown to inhibit murine collagen-induced arthritis and associated Th1 immune responses in vivo, but the mechanisms that underly these effects are not yet understood. In this report we demonstrate that IL-4-transduced DCs loaded with antigen led to lower T cell production of(More)
Class II major histocompatibility molecules confer disease risk in Celiac disease (CD) by presenting gliadin peptides to CD4 T cells in the small intestine. Deamidation of gliadin peptides by tissue transglutaminase creates immunogenic peptides presented by HLA-DQ2 and DQ8 molecules to activate proinflammatory CD4 T cells. Detecting gliadin specific T cell(More)
