The body's surfaces form the interface with the external environment, protecting the host. These epithelial barriers are also colonized by a controlled diversity of microorganisms, disturbances of which can give rise to disease. Specialized intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs), which reside at these sites, are important as a first line of defense as well as in epithelial barrier organization and wound repair. We show here that the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a crucial regulator in… 
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor in innate T cell immunity
TLDR
This work will discuss the recent observations concerning the AhR in relation to the function and maintenance of innate T cells, with focus on γδ T cells found enriched at epithelial barriers.
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor: Linking environment to immunity.
TLDR
Progress in this field is reviewed and how targeting AHR activation may impact disease is discussed, which is critical for maintaining homeostasis and triggering pathology by modulating the biological responses of critical cell types at the barrier and mucosal interfaces.
Role of the Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor in Controlling Maintenance and Functional Programs of RORγt+ Innate Lymphoid Cells and Intraepithelial Lymphocytes
TLDR
The role of AhR signaling for the maintenance of intestinal immune cells and its impact on the immunological protection against intestinal infections and debilitating chronic inflammatory disorders is reviewed.
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor
TLDR
AhR represents the first evidence of a molecular link between diet and immunity at intestinal mucosal surfaces and mediates the maintenance of Retinoic acid related orphan receptor γ t-expressing innate lymphoid cells (RORγt+ ILC) in the gut and consequently formation of postnatal lymphoid follicles.
A catch‐22: Interleukin‐22 and cancer
TLDR
The diverse roles of IL‐22 for the malignant transformation of epithelial cells, for tumor growth, wound healing and tissue repair, and as a potential therapeutic target are summarized.
Development, Homeostasis, and Functions of Intestinal Intraepithelial Lymphocytes
TLDR
The biology of iIELs are reviewed, which show unique phenotypic, developmental, and functional properties that reflect their key roles in maintaining the intestinal epithelial barrier and how their dysregulation can contribute to disease.
Intestinal Barrier Interactions with Specialized CD8 T Cells
TLDR
A comprehensive overview of IEL physiology and how they interact with the IECs and contribute to immune surveillance to preserve intestinal homeostasis and host-microbial relationships is provided.
Epithelial barrier biology: good fences make good neighbours
TLDR
There is an increasing appreciation that the microbiota affects systemic immune responses in addition to local immunity, and some of the current understanding of the impact of immune cells and diet on the microbiota is discussed.
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor in inflammatory bowel disease: linking the environment to disease pathogenesis
TLDR
Novel findings in the role of AhR in regulation of intestinal immune homeostasis and inflammation may help explain how environmental factors may regulate mucosal immune responses.
Xenobiotic receptors and the regulation of intestinal homeostasis - harnessing the chemical output of the intestinal microbiota.
TLDR
The physiological and immunological processes within the intestinal environment that are regulated by microbial metabolites through the activation of the AhR and PXR are outlined, with a focus on ligands generated by the step-wise catabolism of tryptophan.

Recognition of Commensal Microflora by Toll-Like Receptors Is Required for Intestinal Homeostasis
TLDR
It is shown that commensal bacteria are recognized by TLRs under normal steady-state conditions, and this interaction plays a crucial role in the maintenance of intestinal epithelial homeostasis and protection from injury.
Cutting Edge: Protective Response to Pulmonary Injury Requires γδ T Lymphocytes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that γδ intraepithelial lymphocytes can protect the host from pathogenic and nonpathogenic insults by targeting the inflammatory response to epithelial necrosis.
Reciprocal Interactions between Commensal Bacteria and γδ Intraepithelial Lymphocytes during Mucosal Injury1
TLDR
Analysis of TCRδ-deficient mice indicated that γδ T cells are essential for controlling mucosal penetration of commensal bacteria immediately following dextran sulfate sodium-induced damage, suggesting that a key function ofγδ IEL is to maintain host-microbial homeostasis following acute mucosal injury.

Dysregulated TLR signalling by intestinal epithelial cells may explain how colonic bacteria and inflammation promote colorectal cancer.
Regulation of inflammatory responses by gut microbiota and chemoattractant receptor GPR43
TLDR
It is shown that SCFA–GPR43 interactions profoundly affect inflammatory responses, and GPR43 binding of SCFAs potentially provides a molecular link between diet, gastrointestinal bacterial metabolism, and immune and inflammatory responses.
Attributes of γδ intraepithelial lymphocytes as suggested by their transcriptional profile
TLDR
The data suggest that γδ IELs may respond efficiently to a broad range of pathological situations irrespective of their diverse T cell antigen receptor repertoire, and may modulate local immune responses and participate in intestinal lipid metabolism, cholesterol homeostasis, and physiology.
Cutting edge: protective response to pulmonary injury requires gamma delta T lymphocytes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that gamma delta intraepithelial lymphocytes can protect the host from pathogenic and nonpathogenic insults by targeting the inflammatory response to epithelial necrosis.
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor-dependent liver development and hepatotoxicity are mediated by different cell types.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that A HR signaling in endothelial/hematopoietic cells is necessary for developmental closure of the ductus venosus, whereas AHR signaling in hepatocytes is necessary to generate adaptive and toxic responses of the liver in response to dioxin exposure.
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor, cell cycle regulation, toxicity, and tumorigenesis
TLDR
Ultimately, the toxicity of AHR xenobiotic ligands may be intrinsically connected with the perturbation of these pathways and depend on the many critical signaling pathways and effectors with which the AHR itself interacts.
A microbial symbiosis factor prevents intestinal inflammatory disease
TLDR
It is reported here that the prominent human symbiont Bacteroides fragilis protects animals from experimental colitis induced by Helicobacter hepaticus and that molecules of the bacterial microbiota can mediate the critical balance between health and disease.
