Diverging role for coronin 1 in antiviral CD4+ and CD8+ T cell responses.

Coronin 1 is a member of the evolutionary conserved WD repeat protein family and is highly expressed in hematopoietic cells. Coronin 1 is essential for Ca(2+) mobilization upon T cell receptor (TCR) stimulation providing a pro-survival signal for naïve peripheral T cells. Both in mouse and in human, coronin 1 deficiency is associated with severe T cell… CONTINUE READING
