Recycled IL-7 Can Be Delivered to Neighboring T Cells.
Cleveland, United States. In J Immunol, 13 May 2015
Our observations indicate that the ability of cells to recycle IL-7 is dependent on IL-7R α-chain (CD127) and endocytosis, consistent with a model whereby IL-7 is internalized via receptor interactions before recycling.
PLZF expression maps the early stages of ILC1 lineage development.
Chicago, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 02 May 2015
Although a limited set of ILC1 genes depended on PLZF for expression, characteristically including Il7r, most of these genes were also differentially expressed between ILC1s and cNKs, indicating that PLZF together with other, yet to be defined, factors contribute to the divergence between these lineages.
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.
Mucosal-associated invariant T cell is a potential marker to distinguish fibromyalgia syndrome from arthritis.
Sapporo, Japan. In Plos One, Dec 2014
Furthermore, the drug treatment interruption resulted in alternation of the expression of CCR4, CCR5, CXCR4, CD27, CD28, inducible costimulatory molecule (ICOS), CD127 (IL-7 receptor α), CD94, NKp80, an activation marker, CD69, an integrin family member, CD49d, and a dipeptidase, CD26, in FMS.
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.
Interleukin-7 and type 1 diabetes.
Milano, Italy. In Curr Diab Rep, 2013
In this article, we discuss recent evidence of the role of IL-7 mediated T-cell proliferation in the pathogenesis of Type 1 diabetes and the rationale for including immunomodulatory molecules targeting the IL-7/IL-7R axis in immunotherapeutic strategies to control beta-cell autoimmunity.
