IL-35-producing B cells are critical regulators of immunity during autoimmune and infectious diseases
B lymphocytes have critical roles as positive and negative regulators of immunity. Their inhibitory function has been associated primarily with interleukin 10 (IL-10) because B-cell-derived IL-10 canExpand

Salmonella typhimurium aroA- infection in gene-targeted immunodeficient mice: major role of CD4+ TCR-alpha beta cells and IFN-gamma in bacterial clearance independent of intracellular location.
Due to the dependency on aromatic precursors, the growth of Salmonella typhimurium aroA- is limited in immunocompetent mice. Here we show that H-21-A beta-/- mice (lacking MHC class II molecules andExpand

Immune responses to Yersinia enterocolitica in susceptible BALB/c and resistant C57BL/6 mice: an essential role for gamma interferon.
Susceptibility of mice to infection with Yersinia enterocolitica has been shown to be related to neither the Ity locus encoding for resistance to Salmonella typhimurium and other pathogens nor theExpand

Apoptotic vesicles crossprime CD8 T cells and protect against tuberculosis.
CD8 T lymphocytes are important effectors in protective immunity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. We recently characterized the detour pathway of CD8 T cell activation in tuberculosis mediated byExpand

Notch signaling is activated by TLR stimulation and regulates macrophage functions
Notch signaling is a well‐conserved pathway involved in cell fate decisions, proliferation and apoptosis. We report on the involvement of Notch signaling in regulating gene expression in activatedExpand

Increased vaccine efficacy against tuberculosis of recombinant Mycobacterium bovis bacille Calmette-Guérin mutants that secrete listeriolysin.
The tuberculosis vaccine Mycobacterium bovis bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) was equipped with the membrane-perforating listeriolysin (Hly) of Listeria monocytogenes, which was shown to improveExpand
