Intestinal T cells of Dicentrarchus labrax (L.): gene expression and functional studies.

Cellular and molecular data have evidenced a gut-associated lymphoid tissue in a variety of teleost species, abundantly containing T cells, whose origin, selection and functions are still unclear. This study reports CD4, CD8-α, MHCI-α, MHCII-β, rag-1 and TCR-β gene transcription along the intestine (anterior, middle and posterior segments) and in the thymus… CONTINUE READING
