PURPOSE To examine the possibility that aqueous humor-induced regulatory T cells could function in vivo, these T cells were examined for their ability to suppress adoptive transfer of delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH). To begin to understand the mechanisms by which aqueous humor induces activation of regulatory T cells, alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH) and transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta2 were examined for ability to induce regulatory T cells. METHODS Primed T cells were… CONTINUE READING
