Professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs) are capable of transporting self-antigens from peripheral tissues to secondary lymphoid organs where they are presented to potentially autoreactive CD8(+) T cells. In the absence of an inflammatory response, this results in immune tolerance. The presence of activated, antigen-specific CD4(+) T cells converts this(More)
A major challenge in tumor immunology is how best to activate the relatively low avidity self-specific and tumor-specific T cells that are available in the self-tolerant repertoire. To address this issue, we produced a TCR transgenic mouse expressing a class I-restricted hemagglutinin (HA)-specific TCR (clone 1 TCR) derived from a mouse that expressed HA as(More)
A single nucleotide polymorphism in PTPN22 (R620W), which encodes the Lyp tyrosine phosphatase, has been linked to a number of autoimmune diseases including type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. Studies in PTPN22 knockout (KO) mice and in mice expressing the mouse homolog of the pro-autoimmune allele, PEP(R619W), have(More)

Under noninflammatory conditions, both naive and central memory CD8 T cells can be eliminated in the periphery with either soluble peptide or cross-presented Ag. Here, we assess the tolerance susceptibility of tissue-resident memory CD8 T cells in mice to these two forms of tolerogen. Soluble peptide specifically eliminated the majority of memory CD8 cells(More)
