    Endothelial cells express NKG2D ligands and desensitize antitumor NK responses

    Thornton W Thompson et al.
    Antitumor (natural killer) NK cell responses are negatively regulated by interactions between NK cells and endogenous NKG2D ligands constitutively expressed on lymph node endothelial cells and super-induced on tumor-associated endothelium.

    A single, continuous metric to define tiered serum neutralization potency against HIV

    Peter Hraber et al.
    To quantify serum or antibody activity against HIV-1, logistic regression of single-dilution neutralization outcomes can efficiently summarize neutralization potency and indicate which samples may lack sufficient statistical support, for high-throughput screening in large-scale vaccine trials.

    Tuning of in vivo cognate B-T cell interactions by Intersectin 2 is required for effective anti-viral B cell immunity

    Marianne Burbage et al.
    Intersectin2 deficiency is associated with impaired humoral responses to viral infection and B-cell-intrisic defects in germinal centre formation, resulting from the reduced ability of intersectin2-KO B cells to establish cognate interactions with helper T cells.

    A population of innate myelolymphoblastoid effector cell expanded by inactivation of mTOR complex 1 in mice

    Fei Tang et al.
    A novel population of hematopoietic cells unmasked by mTORC1 inactivation reveals a new mechanism of innate immune tolerance and a new consequence of defective hematopoiesis.

    Myeloid cell recruitment versus local proliferation differentiates susceptibility from resistance to filarial infection

    Sharon M Campbell et al.
    Macrophage dynamics are fundamentally different between two commonly used inbred mouse strains and differences in local resident cell expansion versus monocyte recruitment determine the outcome of tissue nematode infection.

    T-cell calcium dynamics visualized in a ratiometric tdTomato-GCaMP6f transgenic reporter mouse

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Salsa6f is a novel, ratiometric genetically encoded Ca2+ indicator that combines the power of ratiometric chemical Ca2+ indicators with the ability, when expressed transgenically, to image cellular Ca2+ signals amid complex tissue environments in vivo.

    Calcium-mediated shaping of naive CD4 T-cell phenotype and function

    Vincent Guichard et al.
    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.

    Intermittent Ca2+ signals mediated by Orai1 regulate basal T cell motility

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Orai1 channels activate intermittently in motile T cells, generating calcium transients, detected by a novel genetically encoded indicator and inducing pauses that favor antigen scanning.

    Computationally-driven identification of antibody epitopes

    Casey K Hua et al.
    The combination of computational modeling and protein design can reveal key determinants of antibody‚Äďantigen binding and optimize small sets of antigen variants for efficient experimental localization of epitopes.

    A picorna-like virus suppresses the N-end rule pathway to inhibit apoptosis

    Zhaowei Wang et al.
    A picorna-like virus promotes the accumulation of caspase-cleaved drosophila inhibitor of apoptosis 1 by inducing the degradation of NTAN1, a key N-end rule degradation pathway component, leading to apoptosis inhibition and viral replication enhancement.
