Down-regulation of IL-7Ralpha expression in human T cells via DNA methylation.


IL-7 is critical for the development and survival of T cells. Recently, we found two subsets of human CD8+ T cells expressing IL-7Ralpha(high) and IL-7Ralpha(low) with different cell survival responses to IL-7. Although these CD8+ T cell subsets have differential IL-7Ralpha gene expression, the mechanism for this is unknown. DNA methylation is an important… (More)
