TNF family member CD70 is the ligand of CD27, a costimulatory receptor that shapes effector and memory T cell pools. Tight control of CD70 expression is required to prevent lethal immunodeficiency. By selective transcription, CD70 is largely confined to activated lymphocytes and dendritic cells (DC). We show here that, in addition, specific intracellular routing controls its plasma membrane deposition. In professional antigen-presenting cells, such as DC, CD70 is sorted to late endocytic… CONTINUE READING
