CD8(+) T cell differentiation: choosing a path through T-bet.

Abstract

Activated CD8(+) T cells can differentiate into transient effector cells or long-lived memory cells. In this issue of Immunity, Joshi et al. (2007) suggest that inflammatory cytokines dictate this balance by regulating the expression of the transcription factor T-bet.
