BACKGROUND & AIMS By binding to T cell immunoglobulin mucin-3 (TIM-3) on activated Th1 cells, galectin-9 (Gal-9) negatively regulates Th1-type alloimmunity. Although T cells contribute to hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), it is unknown whether negative T cell-dependent TIM-3 co-stimulation may rescue IR-stressed orthotopic liver transplants from innate immunity-driven inflammation. METHODS We used wild type (WT) and TIM-3 transgenic (Tg) mice (C57BL/6) as liver donors and recipients… CONTINUE READING
