The immune system must not only fight off infections, but also ensure that it does not react against its own body tissues. Since clones of lymphocytes have predetermined reactivities, some will be self-reactive and have the potential to cause damage. They should therefore be neutralized in some way. In a system as complex and important as that governing self-tolerance, many mechanisms must exist to neutralize autoaggressive lymphocytes. They may be classified under two main groups. In one the… Expand
The immune system victorious: Selective preservation of self
TLDR
Investigations elucidating the role of T cell receptors, MHC molecules and antigen peptides in self-nonself discrimination are discussed, and a introductory summary of the remaining articles in the issue that address selected topics inSelf-non self discrimination. Expand
Presence in peripheral blood of healthy individuals of autoreactive T cells to a membrane antigen present on bone marrow-derived cells.
TLDR
Evidence is presented for the presence, in the periphery of all healthy individuals tested, of autoreactive T cells to GpIIb-IIIa, a membrane antigen present on bone marrow-derived cells that is expressed on circulating platelets and on the cell surface of the epithelial cells of the thymic stroma early in intrauterine life. Expand
Human self‐protein CD8+ T‐cell epitopes are both positively and negatively selected
TLDR
It is shown that there is a clear selection for the presentation of specific self‐protein types, and that this selection can be directly observed through the fraction of non‐synonymous SNP (replacement fraction), which is significantly higher inside epitopes than outside. Expand
BIOLOGICAL SHIELD TO AVOID DEFILEMENTS AND DISEASES: IMMUNITY: AN OVERVIEW
TLDR
Immunity can be defined as the ability to withstand against diseases, the state of having sufficient biological shield to avoid defilements and diseases or other unwanted biological invasion. Expand
Crucial Role of Tissue-specific Apoptosis on the Development of Primary Sjögren's Syndrome
TLDR
The studies reviewed imply that tissue-specific apoptosis and caspase-mediated α fodrin proteolysis are involved in the progression of autoimmune lesions in Sjogren's syndrome. Expand
Noncoding RNA danger motifs bridge innate and adaptive immunity and are potent adjuvants for vaccination.
TLDR
RNA-associated motifs produced during viral infection bridge the early response with the late adaptive phase, regulating the activation and differentiation of antigen-specific B and T cells, in addition to a short-term impact on innate immunity. Expand
Regulation of T lymphocyte subsets.
TLDR
Using murine T cells which express a transgenic, antigen-specific alpha/beta T cell receptor (TCR) specific for L(d) class I major histocompatibility complex antigen, it is found that CD8+ lymphocytes can be divided into functional subsets. Expand
Influence of graft versus host reaction on the T cell repertoire differentiating from bone marrow precursors following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation.
TLDR
The results indicate that recipient cells which produce tissue-specific antigens (tolerogens) should be taken into consideration when generation of the T cell repertoire of donor origin following allogeneic BM transplantation is investigated. Expand
Role of phytochemicals as immunomodulatory agents: A review
TLDR
The present review focused on the immune-modulating activity of various phytochemicals such as alkaloids, polysaccharides, lectins, glycosides, phenolic compounds, flavonoids, anthocyanins, tannins, saponins, terpenoids, sterols and also explains the role of antioxidants as immune- modulators. Expand
In Vivo Evidence for the Contribution of Human Histocompatibility Leukocyte Antigen (Hla)-Dq Molecules to the Development of Diabetes
TLDR
Direct in vivo evidence for the diabetogenic effect of this human MHC class II molecule is provided and a unique “humanized” animal model of spontaneous diabetes is provided. Expand

The immune system maintains a constant capability to respond to the outside world while remaining unresponsive to self. There may be two broad explanations for self-tolerance. First there must beExpand

TLDR
It is a matter of considerable difficulty to judge whether the effects observed mimic the physiological situation of lymphocytes coming to grips with the need to avoid horror aulotoxicus, or whether the model illustrates some facet of immunoregulation needed to limit the cascade of immunoproliferation that follows the introduction of antigen.

TLDR
'Horor autotoxicus', as it was termed by Erhlich, is a rare clinical event despite the genetic potential of every individual to mount immune responses to self-antigens, and different mechanisms of tolerance induction operate for self-reactive T lymphocytes compared with B lymphocytes. Expand
Suppressor T-cell memory
TLDR
The experiments reported here demonstrate the presence of specific long lived memory Ts cells in mice exposed to the protein antigen, human γ-globulin (HGG), and the potential value of Ts in the maintenance of active tolerance to self antigens would be enhanced if a pool of memory cells existed which could be rapidly recruited to abort incipient autoimmune responses. Expand
Tolerance of class I histocompatibility antigens expressed extrathymically
TLDR
The results point to an extrathymic mechanism of tolerance induction, dependent on the continuous presence of antigen and the lack of IL-2 in the local environment of potentially reactive T cells, in older, diabetic mice. Expand
T‐Cell Tolerance in Transgenic Mice Expressing Major Histocompatibility Class I Molecules in Defined Tissues
A fundamental question in immunology is concerned with the mechanism by which tolerance to self components is imparted to developing lymphocytes. This issue is especially relevant to T lymphocytesExpand
The need for central and peripheral tolerance in the B cell repertoire.
TLDR
The immune system normally avoids producing antibodies that react with autologous ("self") antigens by censoring self-reactive T and B cells, but the possibility that distinct cellular mechanisms may impose self tolerance at these two different phases of B cell diversification may explain recent findings in transgenic mouse models. Expand
Identity of cells that imprint H–2-restricted T-cell specificity in the thymus
TLDR
Evidence is presented here that dGuo-treated thymus grafts do imprint T cells with H–2-restricted specificity for antigen, suggesting that induction of tolerance and H-2 restriction are controlled by different cells in the thymu. Expand

TLDR
The plausibility of the notion that there is a separate T cell subpopulation with a suppressor function, which exists to control other cells of the immune system is questioned, but the notion of suppressor Tcells as a separate subpopulation of T cells is sceptical. Expand
Intracellular Recognition Events Eliminate Self‐Reactive T Cells

There is considerable evidence that self-tolerance is acquired during the stage of lymphocyte maturation coinciding with the initial expression of antigen-binding receptors. Expand
