CCR5(+) and CXCR3(+) T cells are increased in multiple sclerosis and their ligands MIP-1alpha and IP-10 are expressed in demyelinating brain lesions.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a T cell-dependent chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. The role of chemokines in MS and its different stages is uncertain. Recent data suggest aExpand
Deacetylase inhibition promotes the generation and function of regulatory T cells
Histone/protein deacetylases (HDACs) regulate chromatin remodeling and gene expression as well as the functions of more than 50 transcription factors and nonhistone proteins. We found thatExpand
Recruitment of Foxp3+ T regulatory cells mediating allograft tolerance depends on the CCR4 chemokine receptor
Although certain chemokines and their receptors guide homeostatic recirculation of T cells and others promote recruitment of activated T cells to inflammatory sites, little is known of the mechanismsExpand
Requirement of the Chemokine Receptor CXCR3 for Acute Allograft Rejection
Chemokines provide signals for activation and recruitment of effector cells into sites of inflammation, acting via specific G protein–coupled receptors. However, in vitro data demonstrating theExpand
Fibrinogen Stimulates Macrophage Chemokine Secretion Through Toll-Like Receptor 41
Extravascular fibrin deposition is an early and persistent hallmark of inflammatory responses. Fibrin is generated from plasma-derived fibrinogen, which escapes the vasculature in response toExpand
Importance of ICOS–B7RP-1 costimulation in acute and chronic allograft rejection
Primary T cell activation requires B7-CD28 and CD40-CD154 costimulation, but effector T cell functions are considered to be largely independent of these costimulatory pathways. Although blockade ofExpand
Oral tolerance to myelin basic protein and natural recovery from experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis are associated with downregulation of inflammatory cytokines and differential upregulation
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in the Lewis rat is a self-limited inflammatory process localized to the central nervous system that is induced by the injection of myelin basicExpand
Helios Expression Is a Marker of T Cell Activation and Proliferation
Foxp3+ T-regulatory cells (Tregs) normally serve to attenuate immune responses and are key to maintenance of immune homeostasis. Over the past decade, Treg cells have become a major focus of researchExpand
The NOD Idd9 genetic interval influences the pathogenicity of insulitis and contains molecular variants of Cd30, Tnfr2, and Cd137.
Previous analyses of NOD mice have shown that some genes control the development of both insulitis and diabetes, while other loci influence diabetes without reducing insulitis. Evidence for theExpand
Foxp3 Reprograms T Cell Metabolism to Function in Low-Glucose, High-Lactate Environments.
Immune cells function in diverse metabolic environments. Tissues with low glucose and high lactate concentrations, such as the intestinal tract or ischemic tissues, frequently require immuneExpand
