Mutation of Tec family kinases alters T helper cell differentiation


The Tec kinases Rlk and Itk are critical for full T cell receptor (TCR)-induced activation of phospholipase C-γ and mitogen-activated protein kinase. We show here that the mutation of Rlk and Itk impaired activation of the transcription factors NFAT and AP-1 and production of both T helper type 1 (TH1) and TH2 cytokines. Consistent with these biochemical… (More)
