IL-6 programs TH-17 cell differentiation by promoting sequential engagement of the IL-21 and IL-23 pathways
T helper cells that produce interleukin 17 (IL-17; 'TH-17 cells') are a distinct subset of proinflammatory cells whose in vivo function requires IL-23 but whose in vitro differentiation requires onlyExpand

Plasticity of CD4+ T cell lineage differentiation.
The differentiation of naive CD4(+) T cells into lineages with distinct effector functions has been considered to be an irreversible event. T helper type 1 (Th1) cells stably express IFN-gamma,Expand

The aryl hydrocarbon receptor regulates gut immunity through modulation of innate lymphoid cells.
Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) expressing the nuclear receptor RORγt are essential for gut immunity presumably through production of interleukin-22 (IL-22). The molecular mechanism underlying theExpand

Transcriptional regulation of Th17 cell differentiation.
The paradigm of effector T helper cell differentiation into either Th1 or Th2 lineages has been profoundly shaken by the discovery of T cells that secrete IL-17 and other inflammatory cytokines. ThisExpand

Genome‐wide survey by ChIP‐seq reveals YY1 regulation of lincRNAs in skeletal myogenesis
Skeletal muscle differentiation is orchestrated by a network of transcription factors, epigenetic regulators, and non‐coding RNAs. The transcription factor Yin Yang 1 (YY1) silences multiple targetExpand

Transcriptional regulatory networks in Th17 cell differentiation.
Upon encountering antigen in the context of antigen presenting cells, naïve CD4(+) T cells undergo differentiation into effector T helper (Th) cells, which can secrete high levels of cytokines andExpand
