Development of allograft rejection continues to be the major determinant of morbidity and mortality postlung transplantation. We have recently demonstrated that a population of donor-derived mesenchymal stem cells is present in human lung allografts and can be isolated and expanded ex vivo. In this study, we investigated the impact of lung resident(More)
BACKGROUND The cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk) inhibitor p21 inhibits cellular proliferation of many cell types, including T cells. Autoimmune models, however, have yielded conflicting results regarding the role of cdk inhibitors and T-cell function. The role of p21 in T-cell function after transplantation has not been investigated directly. We hypothesized(More)
