Immune regulation: Tripping a tissue-specific switch

Abstract

tissue-specific mechanisms in place to regulate the threshold of immune responses and resolve inflammation. A recent study in Nature Immunology has now shown that a homeostatic loop involving CD200 and its receptor (CD200R) is an important regulator of steady-state immune homeostasis and inflammation in the airways. Ligation of CD200R, which is expressed… (More)
