    Human primed ILCPs support endothelial activation through NF-κB signaling

    Giulia Vanoni et al.
    Circulating human primed innate lymphoid cell precursors have the potential to functionally induce adhesion molecules' expression in endothelial cells and possibly support the immune cells' infiltration into the tumor site.

    A paucigranulocytic asthma host environment promotes the emergence of virulent influenza viral variants

    Katina D Hulme et al.

    Development of antibody-dependent cell cytotoxicity function in HIV-1 antibodies

    Laura E Doepker et al.
    HIV-specific antibodies that mediate antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity vary in their paths to achieve function but commonly rely on mutations in multiple regions, including framework regions, to reach full potency.

    The clonal structure and dynamics of the human T cell response to an organic chemical hapten

    Tahel Ronel et al.
    Chronic exposure to a potent chemical contact sensitizer drives a self-limiting expansion of a polyclonal population of T cells recognizing a small number of dominant antigens.
