New open access paper in Nat Rev Immunology: "Constitutive immune mechanisms: mediators of host defence and immune regulation"

By S.Paludan, T.Pradeu, S.Masters & T.Mogensen. Abstract The immune system enables organisms to combat infections and to eliminate endogenous challenges. Immune responses can be evoked through diverse inducible pathways. However, various constitutive mechanisms are also required for immunocompetence. The inducible responses of pattern recognition receptors of the innate immune system and antigen-specific receptors of the… Read more »

The latest Gamma-delta T cell paper is online!

Characterization of a unique γδ T cell subset as a specific marker of CMV infection severity Abstract Cytomegalovirus is a major infectious cause of mortality and morbidity following transplantation. We have previously demonstrated that the tissue-associated adaptive Vδ2neg γδ T-cells are key effectors responding to CMV and associated to recovery, contrasting with their innate-like circulating… Read more »
