Epithelial tuft cells (also known as “brush” cells in the airway) were first identified morphologically, almost six decades ago in the trachea and gastro-intestinal tract, but their function remained mysterious until three almost simultaneous reports recently revealed their essential role in the initiation of immune type 2 responses. This is a new and exciting example of cooperation between the epithelial and haematopoietic compartments for the management of enteric parasite infections. Here we… CONTINUE READING
