A regulatory effect of IL-21 on T follicular helper-like cell and B cell in rheumatoid arthritis

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Interleukin (IL)-21 is a member of type I cytokine family. Recent studies indicate that IL-21 can promote T follicular helper (Tfh) cell differentiation and survival, a specialized T cell subset which provides help for B cell. It can also regulate the activation, proliferation and differentiation of human B cell and immunoglobulin (Ig… (More)
