T helper 17 (Th17) cells are crucial for the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS) in humans and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in animals. High frequency of Th17 cells and low sensitivity to activation-induced cell death (AICD) are detected in MS patients. However, the mechanisms underlying apoptosis resistance of T cells remain unclear. Perp is an apoptosis-associated target of p53 and implicated in the development of cancers. Here, we show that loss of Perp in T cells does… Expand
The p53 effector Perp mediates the persistence of CD4+ effector memory T-cell undergoing lymphopenia-induced proliferation.
Data presented in this work indicate that Perp mediates the persistence of CD4+ TEM cells in irradiation-induced lymphopenic settings. Expand
[rhPDCD5 suppresses pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion and proliferation and induces apoptosis of activated lymphocytes from rats with collagen-induced arthritis].
rhPDCD5 reduces pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion, inhibits the proliferation and promotes activation-induced cell death of activated CD4 + lymphocytes to produce immunosuppression in rat models of CIA. Expand
Insulin receptor substrate 1 gene expression is strongly up-regulated by HSPB8 silencing in U87 glioma cells
It was shown that silencing of HSPB8 mRNA led to a strong down-regulation of this mRNA and significant modification of the expression of IRS1 and many other genes in glioma cells: strong up- regulated of HOMER3, GLO1, and PERP and down-regulated of MYL9, NAMPT, PER2, GADD45A, and DEK gene expressions.

FAS-ligand regulates differential activation-induced cell death of human T-helper 1 and 17 cells in healthy donors and multiple sclerosis patients
It is found that human Th1 cells are sensitive, whereas Th17 and Th1/17 are resistant, to Activation-Induced Cell Death, and this mechanism could explain the persistence of inflammatory IL-17-producing cells in autoimmune diseases, such as MS. Expand
Crucial role of interleukin-7 in T helper type 17 survival and expansion in autoimmune disease
It is described that IL-7 is essential for survival and expansion of pathogenic T helper type 17 (TH17) cells in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), and a unique, previously undescribed role of IL- 7–IL-7R in TH17 cell survival andansion is revealed and has implications in the treatment of autoimmune disease. Expand
Unlike Th1, Th17 Cells Mediate Sustained Autoimmune Inflammation and Are Highly Resistant to Restimulation-Induced Cell Death1
The data show that pathogenic processes triggered by Th17 lag behind those induced by Th1, but then persist remarkably longer, apparently due to the relative resistance of Th17 cells to restimulation-induced cell death. Expand
MicroRNA-21 promotes Th17 differentiation and mediates experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
A T cell-intrinsic miRNA pathway is characterized that enhances TGF-β signaling, limits the autocrine inhibitory effects of IL-2, and thereby promotes Th17 differentiation and autoimmunity. Expand
Generation of Pathogenic Th17 Cells in the Absence of TGF-β Signaling
It is shown that TH17 differentiation can occur in the absence of TGF-β signalling, and this findings re-emphasize the importance of IL-23 and therefore may have therapeutic implications. Expand
Annexin-A1 restricts Th17 cells and attenuates the severity of autoimmune disease.
In man, Anx-A1 serum levels when measured in active uveitis patient sera were low and associated with the detection of IgM and IgG anti-Anx- A1 antibodies when compared to healthy individuals, which supports Anx -A1 as an early and critical regulator of Th17 cell driven autoimmune diseases such as Uveitis.

IL-12– and IL-23–modulated T cells induce distinct types of EAE based on histology, CNS chemokine profile, and response to cytokine inhibition
It is shown that activation of uncommitted myelin-reactive T cells in the presence of either IL-12p70 or IL-23 confers encephalogenicity, and that autoimmunity can be mediated by distinct effector populations that use disparate immunological pathways to achieve a similar clinical outcome. Expand
The Role of IL-17 and Th17 Lymphocytes in Autoimmune Diseases
This review attempts to summarize researches focused on the importance of Th17 cells in development of human autoimmune diseases as well as effectiveness of targeting IL-17 and its pathways in pre-clinical and clinical studies. Expand
Interleukin-17 production in central nervous system-infiltrating T cells and glial cells is associated with active disease in multiple sclerosis.
Observations suggest an enrichment of both IL-17+CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in active MS lesions as well as an important role for IL- 17 in MS pathogenesis, with some remarkable differences from the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis model. Expand
Resistance to apoptosis in CTLL-2 cells constitutively expressing c-Myb is associated with induction of BCL-2 expression and Myb-dependent regulation of bcl-2 promoter activity.
Results strongly suggest that c-Myb, in addition to regulating T cell proliferation, protects T lymphocytes from apoptosis by induction of BCL-2 expression, which involves a c- myb-dependent mechanism of promoter regulation. Expand
