NFAT is a family of transcription factors important in the regulation of cytokine genes and is widely expressed in different lymphoid and nonlymphoid tissues. Consequently, the role of NFAT in CD4+ T cells during an in vivo immune response is not completely clear. In this study, we use transgenic mice expressing a dominant negative NFAT mutant exclusively in T cells to address the role of NFAT in T cells during a Th2 immune response in a model of allergic airway inflammation. We have observed… CONTINUE READING
