IL-7 signalling represses Bcl-6 and the TFH gene program.
Roanoke, United States. In Nat Commun, Dec 2015
Here, we demonstrate that in response to decreased IL-2 signalling, T helper 1 (TH1) cells upregulate Bcl-6 and co-initiate TFH- and TCM-like gene programs, including expression of the cytokine receptors IL-6Rα and IL-7R.
Immunohistochemistry-based prognostic biomarkers in NSCLC: novel findings on the road to clinical use?
Uppsala, Sweden. In Expert Rev Mol Diagn, Apr 2015
Only 26 proteins first described after 2008 (ALDH1A1, ANXA1, BCAR1, CLDN1, EIF4E, EZH2, FOLR1, FOXM1, IL7R, IL12RB2, KIAA1524, CRMP1, LOX, MCM7, MTA1, MTDH, NCOA3, NDRG2, NEDD9, NES, PBK, PPM1D, SIRT1, SLC7A5, SQSTM1 and WNT1) demonstrated a consistent prognostic association in two or more independent patient cohorts, thus qualifying as promising candidates for diagnostic use.
Five Layers of Receptor Signaling in γδ T-Cell Differentiation and Activation.
Lisbon, Portugal. In Front Immunol, 2014
Some of the key players are the costimulatory receptors CD27 and CD28, which differentially impact on pro-inflammatory subsets of γδ T-cells; the cytokine receptors IL-2R, IL-7R, and IL-15R, which drive functional differentiation and expansion of γδ T-cells; the NK receptor NKG2D and its contribution to γδ T-cell cytotoxicity; and the inhibitory receptors PD-1 and BTLA that control γδ T-cell homeostasis.
Targetable kinase-activating lesions in Ph-like acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Memphis, United States. In N Engl J Med, 2014
Kinase-activating alterations were identified in 91% of patients with Ph-like ALL; rearrangements involving ABL1, ABL2, CRLF2, CSF1R, EPOR, JAK2, NTRK3, PDGFRB, PTK2B, TSLP, or TYK2 and sequence mutations involving FLT3, IL7R, or SH2B3 were most common.
