Individual T helper cells have a quantitative cytokine memory.
Berlin, Germany. In Immunity, 20 Feb 2015
Mechanistically, this memory resulted from quantitatively distinct transcription of individual alleles and was controlled by stable expression differences of the Th1 cell lineage-specifying transcription factor T-bet. Functionally, Th1 cells with graded IFN-γ production competence differentially activated Salmonella-infected macrophages for bacterial killing.
An overview of the role of innate lymphoid cells in gut infections and inflammation.
Roma, Italy. In Mediators Inflamm, 2013
Specifically, ILCs1 express the transcription factor T-bet and secrete T helper type-1- (Th1-) related cytokines, ILCs2 are dependent on the transcription factor RORα and express Gata-3 and the chemokine receptor homologous molecule (CRTH2) and produce Th2-related cytokines, and ILCs3 express the transcription factor RORγt and synthesize interleukin- (IL-) 17, IL-22, and, under specific stimuli, interferon-γ.
The emerging role of T cell cytokines in non-small cell lung cancer.
Nürnberg, Germany. In Cytokine Growth Factor Rev, 2012
Whereas T helper 1 cells and their master transcription factor T-bet have been identified as important regulators of IFN-gamma driven anti-tumoral immune response, IL-17 producing T helper 17 cells expressing RORA/C transcription factors have been found to augment tumor growth and cell proliferation in NSCLC.
Mouse T helper 17 phenotype: not so different than in man after all.
Florence, Italy. In Cytokine, 2011
Studies performed in human demonstrated apparent species-specific differences, such as the expression by TH17 cells of the TH1-related transcription factor T-bet, the IL-12-inducible plasticity of TH17 cells into TH1 cells, and the dispensability of TGF-β signaling for their development.
