predominate in the reproductive tract and tongue (Ito-hara et al., 1990). ␥␦ T cells in the epithelium of the small intestine are more heterogeneous, but preferential usage of specific V␥5 ϩ and V␥1.1 ϩ ␥␦ TCRs is evident (Pereira et al., 2000). ␥␦ T cells in secondary lymphoid Development of tissue-specific ␥␦ T cells is a complex process controlled by several layers of regulation. In the Summary case of DETCs, generation of ␥␦ T cells in the early fetal thymus has been shown to be essential… CONTINUE READING
