T, brachyury homolog

TFT, transcription factor T-bet, T-protein
The protein encoded by this gene is an embryonic nuclear transcription factor that binds to a specific DNA element, the palindromic T-site. It binds through a region in its N-terminus, called the T-box, and effects transcription of genes required for mesoderm formation and differentiation. The protein is localized to notochord-derived cells. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on TFT
A central role for Notch in effector CD8(+) T cell differentiation.
New
Impact
Amsen et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Nat Immunol, 26 Nov 2014
Expression of Notch was induced on naive CD8(+) T cells by inflammatory mediators and interleukin 2 (IL-2) via pathways dependent on the metabolic checkpoint kinase mTOR and the transcription factor T-bet.
CD4(+) T Cell Help Guides Formation of CD103(+) Lung-Resident Memory CD8(+) T Cells during Influenza Viral Infection.
New
Impact
Kaech et al., New Haven, United States. In Immunity, 08 Nov 2014
Furthermore, expression of the transcription factor T-bet was increased in "unhelped" lung Trm cells, and a reduction in T-bet rescued CD103 expression in the absence of CD4(+) T cell help.
Mechanistic aspects of thioflavin-T self-aggregation and DNA binding: evidence for dimer attack on DNA grooves.
New
Venturini et al., Pisa, Italy. In Phys Chem Chem Phys, 07 Nov 2014
Thioflavin-T (TFT) is a fluorescent marker widely employed in biomedical research but the mechanism of its binding to polynucleotides has been poorly understood.
Dysfunctional CD8+ T cells in hepatitis B and C are characterized by a lack of antigen-specific T-bet induction.
New
Gruener et al., München, Germany. In J Exp Med, 22 Oct 2014
The transcription factor T-bet regulates the production of interferon-γ and cytotoxic molecules in effector CD8 T cells, and its expression correlates with improved control of chronic viral infections.
The transcription factor T-bet is induced by IL-15 and thymic agonist selection and controls CD8αα(+) intraepithelial lymphocyte development.
New
Impact
Tanriver et al., Freiburg, Germany. In Immunity, 21 Sep 2014
Similar to natural killer cells and other innate lymphoid cells, CD8αα(+) IELs constitutively express the T-box transcription factor T-bet.
Myocardial gene expression of T-bet, GATA-3, Ror-γt, FoxP3, and hallmark cytokines in chronic Chagas disease cardiomyopathy: an essentially unopposed TH1-type response.
New
Cunha-Neto et al., São Paulo, Brazil. In Mediators Inflamm, Dec 2013
METHODS AND RESULTS: Quantitative PCR showed markedly upregulated expression of IFN-γ and transcription factor T-bet, and minor increases of GATA-3; FoxP3 and CTLA-4; IL-17 and IL-18 in CCC as compared with NIC samples.
Roles for helper T cell lineage-specifying transcription factors in cellular specialization.
New
Weinmann, Seattle, United States. In Adv Immunol, Dec 2013
In this review, we will explore our evolving views on these topics, often times using the Th1-lineage-specifying transcription factor T-bet as an example.
Serum soluble TACI, a BLyS receptor, is a powerful prognostic marker of outcome in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
New
Panayiotidis et al., Athens, Greece. In Biomed Res Int, Dec 2013
BLyS is involved in CLL biology and its low soluble serum levels related to a shorter time to first treatment (TFT).
Pathogen-specific Treg cells expand early during mycobacterium tuberculosis infection but are later eliminated in response to Interleukin-12.
New
Impact
Urdahl et al., Seattle, United States. In Immunity, Jul 2013
These antigen-specific Treg cells peaked in numbers 3 weeks after infection but subsequently underwent selective elimination driven, in part, by interleukin-12-induced intrinsic expression of the Th1-cell-promoting transcription factor T-bet.
Improved insulin sensitivity despite increased visceral adiposity in mice deficient for the immune cell transcription factor T-bet.
New
Impact
Howard et al., London, United Kingdom. In Cell Metab, May 2013
We report that mice deficient in the immune cell transcription factor T-bet have lower energy expenditure and increased visceral fat compared with wild-type mice, yet paradoxically are more insulin sensitive.
Three-finger toxins, a deadly weapon of elapid venom--milestones of discovery.
Review
New
Utkin, Moscow, Russia. In Toxicon, Feb 2013
The first TFT α-bungarotoxin was isolated almost half a century ago and so far it remains a valuable tool in the study of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors.
The emerging role of T cell cytokines in non-small cell lung cancer.
Review
Finotto et al., 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.
Expression of brachyury in hemangioblastoma: potential use in differential diagnosis.
GeneRIF
Barresi et al., Messina, Italy. In Am J Surg Pathol, 2012
Propose the use of brachyury as an additional helpful immunohistochemical marker to resolve the differential diagnosis of hemangioblastoma and histologic mimics.
Genome-wide association identifies the T gene as a novel asthma pharmacogenetic locus.
GeneRIF
SHARP Investigators et al., Boston, United States. In Am J Respir Crit Care Med, 2012
Genom-wide association identifies the T gene as a novel asthma pharmacogenetic locus.
T-bet employs diverse regulatory mechanisms to repress transcription.
Review
Weinmann et al., Seattle, United States. In Trends Immunol, 2012

P63 does not regulate brachyury expression in human chordomas and osteosarcomas.
GeneRIF
Flanagan et al., In Histopathology, 2011
DeltaNP63 is not expressed and is therefore rarely, if ever, a transcriptional regulator of brachyury in human osteosarcomas and chordomas.
Mouse T helper 17 phenotype: not so different than in man after all.
Review
Romagnani et al., 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.
