Novel phenotypes and migratory properties distinguish memory CD4 T cell subsets in lymphoid and lung tissue.

Memory T cells are heterogeneous in expression of lymph node homing receptors, delineating "central-memory" (TCM, CD62Lhi/CCR7+) and "effector-memory" (TEM, CD62Llo/CCR7-) subsets that migrate to lymphoid and non-lymphoid tissues, respectively. It is not known how these subsets arise or how homing receptor expression and tissue origin determine their… (More)
