Regulatory T-cell Subpopulations in Severe or Early-onset Preeclampsia.
Linköping, Sweden. In Am J Reprod Immunol, 27 Jul 2015
RESULTS: No differences were found in major Treg populations including CD127(low) CD25(+) /CD127(ow) FOXP3(+) , resting (FOXP3(dim) CD45RA(+) ), and activated (FOXP3(bright) CD45RA(-) ) Treg cells, whereas preeclamptic women showed increased CTLA-4(+) and CCR4(+) proportions within resting/activated Treg populations.
Five Layers of Receptor Signaling in γδ T-Cell Differentiation and Activation.
Lisbon, Portugal. In Front Immunol, Dec 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, Oct 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.
