Morpholino antisense oligonucleotide-mediated gene knockdown during thymocyte development reveals role for Runx3 transcription factor in CD4 silencing during development of CD4-/CD8+ thymocytes.


During thymic T cell development, immature CD4(+)/CD8(+) thymocytes develop into either CD4(+)/CD8(-) helper or CD4(-)/CD8(+) CTLs. The molecular mechanisms governing the complex selection and differentiation steps during thymic T cell development are not well understood. Here we developed a novel approach to investigate gene function during thymocyte… (More)
