    T cell self-reactivity during thymic development dictates the timing of positive selection

    Lydia K Lutes et al.
    Developing T cells whose TCRs have relatively low reactivity experience very brief TCR signaling events, experience delayed positive selection, and retaina preselection gene expression signature as they mature.

    ImmunoCluster provides a computational framework for the nonspecialist to profile high-dimensional cytometry data

    James W Opzoomer et al.
    ImmunoCluster permits nonspecialist users to interrogate liquid and imaging mass, and flow cytometry datasets, resolving novel layers of cellular heterogeneity and insight, as well as producing publishable outputs and figures.

    Fate mapping analysis reveals a novel murine dermal migratory Langerhans-like cell population

    Jianpeng Sheng et al.
    Fate mapping analysis shows that not bona fide Langerhans cells but their ‘look-alikes’ dermal Langerhans cell-like cells migrate to the lymph nodes.

    Competitive binding of STATs to receptor phospho-Tyr motifs accounts for altered cytokine responses

    Stephan Wilmes et al.
    IL-27 exerts differential activation of STAT1 and STAT3 via IL-27Ra and GP130, respectively, leading to a kinetic decoupling of its gene expression program, which contributes to tune its immuno-modulatory activities.
