Cutting edge: adaptive versus innate receptor signals selectively control the pool sizes of murine IFN-γ- or IL-17-producing γδ T cells upon infection.

γδ T lymphocytes are commonly viewed as embracing properties of both adaptive and innate immunity. Contributing to this is their responsiveness to pathogen products, either with or without the involvement of the TCR and its coreceptors. This study clarifies this paradoxical behavior by showing that these two modes of responsiveness are the properties of two… CONTINUE READING
