    Combined transient ablation and single-cell RNA-sequencing reveals the development of medullary thymic epithelial cells

    Kristen L Wells et al.
    Combination of experimental mouse models with single-cell RNA-sequencing creates a detailed map of medullary thymic epithelial cell development and identifies a transit-amplifying population as the immediate precursor to Aire-expressing mTECs.

    Aire-dependent genes undergo Clp1-mediated 3’UTR shortening associated with higher transcript stability in the thymus

    Clotilde Guyon et al.
    The Aire-dependent genes show a preference for short 3’UTR transcript isoforms resulting in the escape from the post-transcriptional repression mediated by miRNAs in medullary thymic epithelial cells.

    Ageing compromises mouse thymus function and remodels epithelial cell differentiation

    Jeanette Baran-Gale et al.
    Thymus ageing is characterised by both compositional and transcriptional shifts amongst epithelial cells that perturb their differentiation, contribute to organ atrophy and ultimately impair immune function.

    The NFκB-inducing kinase is essential for the developmental programming of skin-resident and IL-17-producing γδ T cells

    Florian Mair et al.
    Thymic stromal cells help to develop and shape the gamma delta T cell pool.

    Response to comment on 'AIRE-deficient patients harbor unique high-affinity disease-ameliorating autoantibodies'

    Christina Hertel et al.
    We are writing to reply to the comment by Landegren et al., 2019 about our study (Meyer et al., 2016) on disease-ameliorating autoantibodies.

    T cell immunodominance is dictated by the positively selecting self-peptide

    Wan-Lin Lo et al.
    The T cell repertoire can display immunodominance to an epitope as a result of optimal positive selection in the thymus by one self-peptide/MHC ligand.

    A role for phagocytosis in inducing cell death during thymocyte negative selection

    Nadia S Kurd et al.
    Self-reactive thymocyte death is most efficient when peptide-presenting cells are phagocytic, and blocking phagocytosis inhibits self-reactive thymocyte death, suggesting that phagocytes play central roles during thymocyte negative selection.

    Neonatal-derived IL-17 producing dermal γδ T cells are required to prevent spontaneous atopic dermatitis

    Nicholas A Spidale et al.
    Neonatal-origin dermal Tγδ17 cells are required to maintain normal keratinocytes and prevent spontaneous atopic dermatitis.

    Differential requirement of kindlin-3 for T cell progenitor homing to the non-vascularized and vascularized thymus

    Federico Andrea Moretti et al.
    T cell progenitor homing into the thymus requires kindlin-3 to stabilize their adhesion to vascular integrin ligands when blood flow velocities and shear rates increase during development.

    IL18 signaling promotes homing of mature Tregs into the thymus

    Cristina Peligero-Cruz et al.
    IL18R+ Tregs constitute a mature thymus-resident population, resistant to thymus involution and endowed with higher capacity to populate the thymus compared to their IL18R or IL18R deficient counterparts.
