All juvenile mice of the nonobese diabetic (NOD) strain develop insulitis, but there is considerable variation in their progression to diabetes. Here we used a strategy based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of magnetic nanoparticles to noninvasively visualize local effects of pancreatic-islet inflammation to predict the onset of diabetes in NOD mice.(More)
The transcription factor Foxp3 participates dominantly in the specification and function of Foxp3(+)CD4(+) regulatory T cells (T(reg) cells) but is neither strictly necessary nor sufficient to determine the characteristic T(reg) cell signature. Here we used computational network inference and experimental testing to assess the contribution of other(More)
Epigenetic modifiers are an emerging class of anti-tumor drugs, potent in multiple cancer contexts. Their effect on spontaneously developing autoimmune diseases has been little explored. We report that a short treatment with I-BET151, a small-molecule inhibitor of a family of bromodomain-containing transcriptional regulators, irreversibly suppressed(More)
The transcription factor FoxP3 partakes dominantly in the specification and function of FoxP3 + CD4 + T regulatory cells (Tregs), but is neither strictly necessary nor sufficient to determine the characteristic Treg signature. Computational network inference and experimental testing assessed the contribution of other transcription factors (TF). Enforced(More)
