    Direct single molecule measurement of TCR triggering by agonist pMHC in living primary T cells

    Geoff P O'Donoghue et al.
    Quantitative observations of single-molecule binding between antigen and T cell receptor (TCR) in living primary T cells reveals unbinding kinetics, stoichiometry and signaling molecule recruitment, providing insights into the mechanisms of antigen recognition by the immune system.

    Discovery of surrogate agonists for visceral fat Treg cells that modulate metabolic indices in vivo

    Ricardo A Fernandes et al.
    Surrogate agonist peptide ligands discovered through screening of an IAb-peptide library potentiate expansion of visceral adipose tissue resident regulatory T cells and protect mice from inflammation and improve metabolic indices.

    Identification of potential biomarkers of vaccine inflammation in mice

    Paul F McKay et al.
    Molecular biosignatures that identify an inflammatory and potentially adverse reaction to vaccination have been defined in mice, a critical gatekeeper for progression of novel vaccine candidates into humans.

    Rejuvenating conventional dendritic cells and T follicular helper cell formation after vaccination

    Marisa Stebegg et al.
    Older individuals have impaired conventional dendritic cell and T follicular helper cell formation upon vaccination, which can be rescued by treatment with a TLR7 agonist.

    A zebrafish and mouse model for selective pruritus via direct activation of TRPA1

    Kali Esancy et al.
    A pain-relaying ion channel on a hypersensitive population of sensory neurons can instead elicit sensations of itch in both fish and mice when directly activated, providing a novel model of itch transduction.

    Crucial role for T cell-intrinsic IL-18R-MyD88 signaling in cognate immune response to intracellular parasite infection

    Ana-Carolina Oliveira et al.
    Development of a robust Th1 response to infection against an intracellular parasite requires T-cell intrinsic MyD88 signaling, mostly through the upstream IL-18 receptor, for the induction of genes involved in proliferation, cytokine production and migration.

    Mycolic acid-specific T cells protect against Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in a humanized transgenic mouse model

    Jie Zhao et al.
    A humanized transgenic mouse model reveals that CD1b-restricted, mycolic acid-specific T cells play a protective role during Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

    TLR5 participates in the TLR4 receptor complex and promotes MyD88-dependent signaling in environmental lung injury

    Salik Hussain et al.
    The response to TLR4 ligands in mice and humans is modulated by TLR5, which participates in the TLR4 signaling complex.

    Pi-Pi contacts are an overlooked protein feature relevant to phase separation

    Robert McCoy Vernon et al.
    Statistics on the frequencies of pi interactions in folded protein structures enable successful prediction of intrinsically disordered protein phase separation, with clear implications for a physical understanding of cellular organization.

    The discriminatory power of the T cell receptor

    Johannes Pettmann et al.
    The ability of the T cell receptor to discriminate ligands is imperfect, allowing T cells to respond to ultra-low-affinity ligands.
