Although IL-15 is known to be a T cell growth factor, the function in T cells of IL-15Ralpha, its high affinity receptor, remains unclear. We found that murine IL-15Ralpha(-/-) CD4(+) T cells hyperproliferated in response to TCR stimulation, in vitro and in vivo, and displayed a lower TCR activation threshold than wild-type CD4(+) T cells. TCR-induced(More)
Although ASIC4 is a member of the acid-sensing ion channel (ASIC) family, we have limited knowledge of its expression and physiological function in vivo. To trace the expression of this ion channel, we generated the ASIC4-knockout/CreERT(2)-knockin (Asic4(Cre) (ERT) (2)) mouse line. After tamoxifen induction in the Asic4(Cre)(More)
