Transforming growth factor-β induces development of the TH17 lineage


A new lineage of effector CD4+ T cells characterized by production of interleukin (IL)-17, the T-helper-17 (TH17) lineage, was recently described based on developmental and functional features distinct from those of classical TH1 and TH2 lineages. Like TH1 and TH2, TH17 cells almost certainly evolved to provide adaptive immunity tailored to specific classes… (More)
