MiR-125a targets effector programs to stabilize Treg-mediated immune homeostasis.

Although different autoimmune diseases show discrete clinical features, there are common molecular pathways intimately involved. Here we show that miR-125a is downregulated in peripheral CD4(+) T cells of human autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus and Crohn's disease, and relevant autoimmune mouse models. miR-125a stabilizes both the… (More)
