A multi-transcriptional CDKs inhibitor suppresses MYC and induces regression of ovarian tumors, indicating that targeting CDK7, 12, 13 with THZ1 may be an effective approach for treating MYC-dependent malignancies.
HLA-B*35:01 molecules that are peptide-deficient are thermostable, bind CD8 with higher affinity than their peptide-filled versions, accumulate at immunological synapses and enhance antigen-specific CD8+ T cell immune responses.
Immunological analysis of wild-type and Crlf2-/- mice reveals a role for the cytokine thymic stromal lymphopoietin on memory CD8+ T-cell responses to viral infection, findings with potential translational implications.
Calcium-calcineurin signaling cascade drives the acquisition of both the phenotype of the most self-reactive naive CD4 T cells and their enhanced cell-intrinsic ability to commit into induced regulatory T cells upon activation.
Sepsis-induced numerical loss of naive autoantigen-specific CD4 T cells reduces host capacity to develop autoimmune immune disease, thereby demonstrating an intriguing relationship between infection and autoimmune disease.
