Development of long-lived humoral immunity is dependent on CXCR5-expressing T follicular helper (Tfh) cells, which develop concomitantly to effector Th cells that support cellular immunity. Conventional dendritic cells (cDCs) are critical APCs for initial priming of naive CD4+ T cells but, importantly, also provide accessory signals that govern effector Th cell commitment. To define the accessory role of cDCs during the concurrent development of Tfh and effector Th1 cells, we performed high-dose Ag immunization in conjunction with the Th1-biased adjuvant polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid (pI:C). In the absence of cDCs, pI:C failed to induce Th1 cell commitment and IgG2c production. However, cDC depletion did not impair Tfh cell differentiation or germinal center formation, and long-lived IgG1 responses of unaltered affinity developed in mice lacking cDCs at the time point for immunization. Thus, cDCs are required for the pI:C-driven Th1 cell fate commitment but have no crucial accessory function ...
Follicular helper CD4 T (Tfh) cells are a distinct type of differentiated CD4 T cells uniquely specialized for B cell help. In this study, we examined Tfh cell fate commitment, including distinguishing features of Tfh versus Th1 proliferation and survival. Using cell transfer approaches at early time points after an acute viral infection, we demonstrate that early Tfh cells and Th1 cells are already strongly cell fate committed by day 3. Nevertheless, Tfh cell proliferation was tightly regulated in a TCR-dependent manner. The Tfh cells still depend on extrinsic cell fate cues from B cells in their physiological in vivo environment. Unexpectedly, we found that Tfh cells share a number of phenotypic parallels with memory precursor CD8 T cells, including selective upregulation of IL-7Rα and a collection of coregulated genes. As a consequence, the early Tfh cells can progress to robustly form memory cells. These data support the hypothesis that CD4 and CD8 T cells share core aspects of a memory ...
Several experiences induced us to consider genital HPV infection as an expression of a local immunodeficiency. The aim of our study was to research the effect of immunotherapy on the lymphocyte subpopulations and Langerhans cells in vulvar condyloma. Twenty women with persistent vulvar condylomata, treated with 2,000,000 IU/die of beta-interferon for 15 days, were submitted to vulvar biopsy before and 2-5 months after medical treatment. The frozen sections obtained were assayed with the following monoclonal antibodies: OKT4 (T helper lymphocytes), OKT8 (T suppressor lymphocytes), OKB7 (B lymphocytes) and S-100 protein (Langerhans cells). Using a morphometric evaluation, the average number of both intraepithelial and stromal lymphocyte subsets and of the intraepithelial Langerhans cells was assessed. In all the biopsies preceding the medical treatment we found a low number of T helper lymphocytes both in the epithelium and stroma, with inversion of T4/T8 lymphocyte ratio and rare presence of ...
We recently observed a very weak type I (IFN-α/β) ISG response in two chimpanzees with acute hepatitis A (Lanford et al., 2011). The present study was undertaken to assess cellular immunity in the setting of weak ISG activity, and to define protective mechanisms that contribute to resolution of acute symptomatic hepatitis A and prevent relapse of liver disease that is observed in some individuals after apparent control of the infection. Our results indicate that control of acute hepatitis A was most closely associated with a CD4+ T cell response that was strong and sustained despite weak ISG activity.. Control of HCV and HBV infections is critically dependent on CD8+ T cells. Studies in humans and chimpanzees have documented a temporal association between the development of a functional CD8+ T cell response and control of liver infection (Rehermann, 2009; Chisari et al., 2010; Walker, 2010). Moreover, infection is prolonged or persists in HCV and HBV-infected chimpanzees after ...
Several elegant models of AAD have been described whereby transfer of in vitro-polarized Th2 cells induces pulmonary eosinophilia 18,19,20,21. However, the Th cells used for these studies were, in general, polarized for short times in culture. Therefore, we set out to develop a system whereby Th cells were maximally polarized to ensure differential chemokine receptor expression, and thus induced multiple pathophysiological endpoints after transfer in vivo. Th2 or Th1 cells were generated in vitro after several rounds of polarizing cytokines before transfer in vivo, when mice received multiple serial in vivo antigen challenges. Accordingly, Th1 or Th2 cells were transferred intravenously to unsensitized BALB/c recipient mice, and changes in lung function were measured at various time intervals after antigen challenge. Mice were then killed at day 4 or 7, and the extent of inflammation was determined in the BAL and tissue (Fig. 1). Control mice that received cells but no antigen challenge showed ...
T helper cell factors (HF) have been preparated against protein and synthetic antigens by restimulating in vitro induced helper cells with small amounts of antigen. HF when tested in vitro are antigen specific and capable of replacing T cells, initiating a thymus dependent IgM response. In the in vivo adoptive transfer assay HF is capable of replacing T helper cells and is active at very high dilution, inducing both IgM and IgG responses. When tested on unirradiated DNP primed animals the HF was able to initiate a thymus dependent anti-hapten response, comparable to that seen with helper T cells, of both IgM and IgG class. It was also shown that HF acts on anti-Thy 1 treated spleen cells. The results indicate that antigen specific helper factors may be one of the physiologic mediators of T-B interactions in intact animals.

CD4+ T cells are critical for host defense but are also major drivers of immune-mediated disease. These T cells specialize to become distinct subsets and produce restricted patterns of cytokines, which are tailored to combat various microbial pathogens. Although classically viewed as distinct lineages, recent work calls into question whether helper CD4+ T cell subsets are more appropriately viewed as terminally differentiated cells or works in progress. Herein, we review recent advances that pertain to this topic and the mechanisms that contribute to helper CD4+ T cell commitment and plasticity. The therapeutic implications of these new findings are also considered.. ...
HIV-specific CD4+ T helper lymphocytes are preferred targets for infection. Although complete interruption of combination antiretroviral therapy (ART) can form part of therapeutic manipulations, there is grave concern that the resumption of viral replication might destroy, perhaps irreversibly, these T helper populations. High viremia blocks the proliferation capacity of HIV-specific helper cells. However, cytokine production assays imply that some antigen-specific effector function is retained. Despite this careful work, it remains unclear whether the return of HIV-1 replication physically destroys HIV-1-specific T helper cells in the peripheral blood. Difficulties in producing stable peptide-MHC class II complexes and the very low frequencies of antigen-specific CD4+ T cells have delayed the application of this powerful technique. Here we employ HLA class II tetramers and validate a sensitive, quantitative cell-enrichment technique to detect HIV-1 T helper cells. We studied patients with early-stage

The follicular helper T (Tfh) cells help is critical for activation of B cells, antibody class switching and germinal center formation. The Tfh cells are characterized by the expression of CXCR5, ICOS, PD-1, Bcl-6, and IL-21. They are involved in clearing infections and are adversely linked with autoimmune diseases and also have a role in viral replication as well as clearance. Tfh cells are generated from naïve CD4 T cells with sequential steps involving cytokine signaling (IL-21, IL-6, IL-12, activin A), migration and positioning in the germinal center by CXCR5, surface receptors (ICOS/ICOSL, SAP/SLAM) as well as transcription factor (Bcl-6, c-Maf, STAT3) signaling and repressor miR155. On the other hand Tfh generation is negatively regulated at specific steps of Tfh generation by specific cytokine (IL-2, IL-7), surface receptor (PD-1, CTLA-4), transcription factors Blimp-1, STAT5, T-bet, KLF-2 signaling and repressor miR 146a. Interestingly, miR 17-92 and FOXO1 acts as a positive as well as a
B cell activation and antibody production against foreign antigens is a central step of host defense. This is achieved via highly regulated multi-phase processes that involve a variety of cells of both innate and adaptive arms of the immune system. MHC class II-restricted CD4+ T cells specific for peptide antigens, which acquire professional follicular B cell helper functions, have been long recognized as key players in this process. Recent data, however, challenge this paradigm by showing the existence of other helper cell types. CD1d restricted NKT cells specific for lipid antigens are one such new player and can coopt bona fide follicular helper phenotypes. Their role in helping antigen-specific B cell response to protein antigens, as well as to the so called
Methods to prime human CD4+ T cells in vitro would be of significant value for the pre-clinical evaluation of vaccine candidates and other immunotherapeutics. However, to date, there is no reliable method for the induction of primary human T cell responses in the laboratory. Here, we optimized a culture strategy incorporating highly purified lymphocytes and dendritic cells, in the absence of any exogenous growth factors, for the in vitro sensitization of naïve CD4+ T cells against a variety of protein antigens. This fully autologous approach, which was superior to the more traditional PBMC assay for supporting the induction of primary human T helper cell responses in culture, elicited effector cells capable of producing a variety of Th cytokines, including IFN?, TNFa, IL-2, IL-5, IL-17 and IL-21, and memory cells that could be restimulated multiple times with a specific antigen. Through simple modifications to this culture method, we evaluated the role of dendritic cell maturation state and ...
The lymphoid follicle is critical for the development of humoral immune responses. Cell circulation to this site is highly regulated by the differential expression of chemokine receptors. This feature contributes to the establishment of viral reservoirs in lymphoid follicles and the development of some types of malignancies that are able to evade immune surveillance, especially conventional CD8+ T cells. Interestingly, a subtype of CD8+ T cells located within the lymphoid follicle (follicular CD8+ T cells) was recently described; these cells have been proposed to play an important role in viral and tumor control, as well as to modulate humoral and T follicular helper cell responses. In this review we summarize the knowledge on this novel CD8+ T cell population, its origin, function and potential role in health and disease, in particular, in the context of the infection by the human immunodeficiency virus.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Peptide epitope identification for tumor-reactive CD4 T cells. AU - Kobayashi, Hiroya. AU - Celis, Esteban. PY - 2008/4/1. Y1 - 2008/4/1. N2 - Because T lymphocytes have the capacity to recognize tumor cells, significant efforts are being devoted towards the development of T cell-based immunotherapy for cancer. Most of this work has centered in the induction of anti-tumor CD8 T cells, which exhibit cytolytic activity towards tumor cells expressing tumor-specific or tumor associated antigens. Unfortunately to this day, T cell-based immunotherapy for cancer remains suboptimal. One of the possible explanations is that these immunotherapies have ignored the role that CD4 T helper lymphocytes play in the generation and persistence of CD8 T cell responses. Thus, we believe that in order to obtain clinical benefits T cell-based immunotherapy must stimulate both CD8 and CD4 tumor-reactive T cell responses. During the past seven years our group has focused on the identification of CD4 T ...
T cell autoreactivity is a hallmark of autoimmune diseases but can also benefit self-maintenance and foster tissue repair. Here, we investigated whether heart-specific T cells exert salutary or detrimental effects in the context of myocardial infarction (MI), the leading cause of death worldwide. After screening more than 150 class II-restricted epitopes, we found that myosin heavy chain α (MYHCA) was a dominant cardiac antigen triggering post-MI CD4+ T cell activation in Balb/c mice. Transferred MYHCA614-629-specific CD4+ T cells (TCR-M cells) selectively accumulated in the myocardium and mediastinal lymph nodes (med-LNs) of infarcted mice, acquired a Treg phenotype with a distinct prohealing gene expression profile, and mediated cardioprotection. Myocardial Tregs were also detected in autopsy samples from patients who had had a MI. Noninvasive PET/CT imaging using a CXCR4 radioligand revealed enlarged med-LNs with increased cellularity in patients with MI. Notably, the med-LN alterations ...
The pathophysiology of AIDS is complex, as is the case with all syndromes. Ultimately, HIV causes AIDS by depleting CD4+ T helper lymphocytes. This weakens the immune system and allows opportunistic infections. T lymphocytes are essential to the immune response and without them, the body cannot fight infections or kill cancerous cells. The mechanism of CD4+ T cell depletion differs in the acute and chronic phases. During the acute phase, HIV-induced cell lysis and killing of infected cells by cytotoxic T cells accounts for CD4+ T cell depletion, although apoptosis may also be a factor. During the chronic phase, the consequences of generalized immune activation coupled with the gradual loss of the ability of the immune system to generate new T cells appear to account for the slow decline in CD4+ T cell numbers. Although the symptoms of immune deficiency characteristic of AIDS do not appear for years after a person is infected, the bulk of CD4+ T cell loss occurs during the first weeks of ...

A team of Whitehead Institute researchers recently discovered how T follicular helper cells function in the body, a key to understanding the human immune system.
BACKGROUND: CD40 is a 48 kDa type I transmembrane protein that is constitutively expressed on hematopoietic cells such as dendritic cells, macrophages, and B cells. Engagement of CD40 by CD40L expressed on T cells results in the production of proinflammatory cytokines, induces T helper cell function, and promotes macrophage activation. The involvement of CD40 in chronic immune activation has resulted in CD40 being proposed as a therapeutic target for a range of chronic inflammatory diseases. CD40 antagonists are currently being explored for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and several anti-CD40 agonist mAbs have entered clinical development for oncological indications. RESULTS: To better understand the mode of action of anti-CD40 mAbs, we have determined the x-ray crystal structures of the ABBV-323 (anti-CD40 antagonist, ravagalimab) Fab alone, ABBV-323 Fab complexed to human CD40 and FAB516 (anti-CD40 agonist) complexed to human CD40. These three crystals structures 1) identify the ...

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Danielle Stretch.. Gene expression levels are believed to be continuously distributed from very low to very high levels, with most genes at an intermediate level. We have studied the transcriptome-wide distribution of expression levels in mouse T helper cells using RNA -seq technology, and have developed a variety of ways to model the expected background levels. This is critical for definition of a threshold level of expression of a gene in a given cell type. In order to calibrate the RNA -seq expression levels in terms of molecules of mRNA per cell, we have intregrated the RNA -seq data with single molecule mRNA-FISH experiments.. The results of these analyses and experiments show that many genes are expressed at > ~1 molecule per cell and that two major expression levels can be identified which vary by roughly one to two orders of magnitude. This gives rise to bimodal distributions of gene expression levels in cell populations. Analysis of ...

Helper activity of several murine CD4+ T cell subsets was examined. Effector Th, derived from naive cells after 4 days of in vitro stimulation with alloantigen, when generated in the presence of IL-4, secreted high levels of IL-4, IL-5, and IL-6, and low levels of IL-2 and IFN-gamma, and induced the secretion of all Ig isotypes particularly IgM, IgG1, IgA, and IgE from resting allogeneic B cells. Effectors generated with IL-6 secreted IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, and IFN-gamma, and induced similar levels of total Ig, 25 to 35 micrograms/ml, but with IgM, IgG3, IgG1, and IgG2a isotypes predominating. Helper activity of these Th was significantly greater than that of effectors generated with IL-2 (10-15 micrograms/ml Ig) and of 24-h-activated naive and memory cells (2-4 micrograms/ml), both of which induced mainly IgM. Unlike other isotypes, IgE was induced only by effector Th generated with IL-4. Blocking studies showed that secretion of all isotypes in response to IL-6-primed effectors was dependent ...
T helper cells (also known as effector T cells or Th cells) are a sub-group of lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell or leukocyte) that play an important role in establishing and maximizing the capabilities of the immune system. .   they have no cytotoxic or phagocytic activity; they cannot kill infected host (also known as somatic) cells or pathogens, Th cells are involved in activating and directing other immune cells, and are particularly important in the immune system .  Mature Th cells are believed to always express the surface protein CD4. T cells expressing CD4 are also known as CD4+ T cells. .  Cytotoxic T cells (TC cells, or CTLs) destroy virally infected cells and tumor cells, and are also implicated in transplant rejection. These cells are also known as CD8+ T cells (associated with MHC class I), since they express the CD8 glycoprotein at their surface. Through SLOB[ clarification needed] interaction with T regulatory CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ cells, these cells can be ...

To make the video memorable, it has to feel like a journey and have a punch line at the end - a complete story arc or a loop of information. Thus, I think it would be best to present a threat in the beginning then focus on the roles of B-Cells and use them as the story driver: The audience needs a reason to go on a journey so the B-Cells could be presented in a way that feels as if they are waiting for activation by the Helper T-Cells and their Cytokines. (Cytokines are proteins that stimulate the other cells to be more active) The film will move on to show what is keeping the Phagocytes busy and how they then interact with Helper T-Cells. The explanation of the exact roles of Helper T-Cells would lead back to the activation of the B-Cells and the 3/4 change of pace of the video. A final illustration of the battle between this whole system and the pathogen presents itself as a satisfying conclusion for our story arc ...
Although in vivo priming of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) generally requires the participation of CD4+ T-helper lymphocytes, the nature of the help provided to CTLs is unknown.

In response to antigen presentation, helper T lymphocytes (TH cells) initiate store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) and differentiate into effector subtypes such as TH1 and TH2 cells. These cells play essential roles in adaptive immunity and the pathogenesis of various autoimmune and allergic diseases. The differentiation and activity of TH cells are also critically regulated by paracrine and autocrine soluble factors in the cell microenvironment. Previous studies have reported that TH cells produce gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) via glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and express A-type GABA receptors (GABAARs), forming an autocrine GABA signaling system. In addition, GABA executes anti-inflammatory actions in TH1-autoimmune diseases. This project sought to examine whether autocrine GABA signaling distinctively regulates the function of different TH effector cells using two unique lines of human TH cells: Jurkat and CCRF-CEM. Our results showed that Jurkat and CCRF-CEM cells exhibited features of TH1 and TH2
CD4+ T cells are central mediators of autoimmune pathology; however, defining their key effector functions in specific autoimmune diseases remains challenging.
4 ± 88.4 (log10 2.45 ± 1.95). YC-Brij700chitosan-gp140 but not YC-SDS-gp140 nor YC-NaMA-gp140 promoted significant specific-gp140 IgA titers (P < 0.05) after three immunizations (90 days). Such effect was comparable to that of Alum at the same time point (P < 0.05). However, the effect of NP as a whole on serum specific-gp140 IgA after i.d. immunization was low because the kinetics and magnitude of specific-gp140 IgA responses promoted by Alum after the first boost (60 days) was significantly superior to those of NP ( Fig. 4C). To test whether YC-wax NP modulated T-helper cell responses, the gp140 specific IgG1/IgG2a. ratio was also determined by ELISA. Of note, gp140 alone induced an IgG response that was biased selleck screening library towards a Th2 phenotype. Such a response did not appear to be modulated by Alum, YC-wax NaMA or YC-wax Brij700-chitosan (Fig. 4D). However, YC-wax SDS appeared to induce a more balanced Th1/Th2 response. (Fig. 4D). To test whether NP were also capable of ...

Results: Mean IL-4R expression on monocytes and Th lymphocytes did not differ at birth. After one year it increased on Th-lymphocytes and decreased on monocytes. However, among 10 children with severe atopy during the observation period, 8 displayed IL-4R above the mean value for the group on both monocytes and Th cells at birth as well as one year later. No correlation was found between IL-4 or IFN-γ and IL-4R expression at birth. After one year, significant IL-4 increases and IFN-γ decreases were observed which correlated with IL-4R expression. IL-4R expression on the newborns monocytes correlated negatively with IL-12 plasma level; however, it was statistically significant only in the children developing allergy. Moreover, only in these patients was a significant decrease in IL-12 found after one year ...

that prosecutes therapeutic technology. It is a class of technology that allows the T helper cells in the body to recognize cancer in their bodies. When the T helper cells in the immune system of the body are trained to recognize the cancer cells, it kills the cancer cells. This technology is going to be extremely important for patients that are undergoing surgery. There are still loose cells of the tumor traveling through the body and it is very difficult to detect and kill them with chemotherapy. The best way is to use our technology in a therapeutic format.

Two synergizing antigen-specific helper T (Th) cell populations are required for an optimal TEPC15 (T15)-dominated antiphosphorylcholine (PC) plaque- forming cell response . In these studies, the two Th cell sets are shown to differ in their requirements for recognition of self-major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-encoded determinants by testing the ability of Th cells from F(1) {arrow} parent bone marrow chimeras to collaborate with PC-specific B cells bearing MHC-encoded determinants of either parental haplotypes. Previous studies have shown that one antigen-specific Th cell population is required for T-dependent anti-PC responses and activates PC-specific B cells only if the hapten, PC, is physically linked to the priming antigen. This Th cell, referred to as ThMHC, induces anti-PC responses that are mainly non-T15 in character, and it appears to be identical to the conventional antigen- specific Th cell. In these experiments, using T cells from (A X B)F(1) {arrow} parent A chimeras, ThMHC ...

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is a type of antibody associated with allergies and response to parasites such as worms. When high-affinity, allergen-specific IgE binds its target, it can cross-link receptors on mast cells that induce anaphylaxis. It remains unclear, however, how B cells are instructed to generate high-affinity IgE. Gowthaman et al. discovered a subset of T follicular helper cells (TFH13) that direct B cells to do just that. TFH13 cells are induced by allergens but not during parasite infection. Transgenic mice lacking these cells show impaired production of high-affinity, anaphylactic IgE.

These CD4-deficient helper T cells expressed alpha beta-TCR and were able to control Leishmania infections and to mediate Ab class switch. Using mice deficient for the CD8 alpha-chain, we investigated whether a similar cytotoxic T cell population was generated in the absence of the CD8 coreceptor. A CD8-deficient cytotoxic T cell population corresponding to the described CD4-deficient helper T cell population was virtually absent both functionally and physically. These results support the idea that thymic maturation is asymmetrical and strongly biased toward the helper phenotype. ...
Follicular T helper (Tfh) cells are essential in the formation of high-affinity antibody producing plasma cells and memory B cells. After antigen encounter naive Tfh cells start to upregulate the chemokine receptor CXCR5. This results in homing of the Tfh cells to lymph node follicles where the Tfh cells specifically ... read more localise in germinal centres (GCs). In the GCs the Tfh cells stimulate B cells to differentiate resulting in the production of antibodies. In systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) an increased amount of autoantibodies is seen. Recent studies postulate that an increased amount of autoantibodies can be related to Tfh cells. The exact role of Tfh cells in the production of autoantibodies in SLE remains elusive, but some research papers provide information from which potential roles can be drawn. The essence of these research papers is the increased level of the chemokine ligand CXCL13 in SLE. CXCL13 levels correlate with disease severity. Further knowledge concerning the ...

Wong, M.T., Chen, J., Narayanan, S. et al.. Single-cell analysis technologies such as mass cytometry allow for measurements of cellular heterogeneity with unprecedented dimensionality. Here, we applied dimensionality reduction and automated clustering methods on human T helper (TH) cells derived from peripheral blood and tonsils, which showed differential cell composition and extensive TH cell heterogeneity. Notably, this analysis revealed numerous subtypes of follicular helper T (TFH) cells that followed a continuum spanning both blood and tonsils. Furthermore, we identified tonsillar CXCR5loPD-1loCCR7lo TFH cells expressing interferon-γ (IFN-γ), interleukin-17 (IL-17), or Foxp3, indicating that TFH cells exhibit diverse functional capacities within extrafollicular stages. Regression analysis demonstrated that CXCR5loPD-1(-) and CXCR5loPD-1lo cells accumulate during childhood in secondary lymphoid organs, supporting previous findings that these subsets represent memory TFH cells. This study ...

Maintenance of homeostasis through the tight control of inflammatory Th cells is crucial to avoid autoimmune inflammation. Activation-Induced Cell Death (AICD) regulates homeostasis of T cells, and it has never been investigated in human Th cells. We generated stable clones of inflammatory Th subsets involved in autoimmune diseases, such as Th1, Th17 and Th1/17 cells, from healthy donors (HD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and we measured AICD. We find that human Th1 cells are sensitive, whereas ...
Nitrophenyl (NP)-specific helper cells and suppressor cells were induced in vitro using NP-T4 bacteriophage as antigen. These cells could mediate their effects also by secreted effector molecules, helper and suppressor factors. The function of both NP-specific helper and suppressor cells was abolished by treatment with anti-Thy1.2 plus C, but they were not retained on nylon wool columns, suggesting that NP-specific helpers and suppressors were T cells. The membrane phenotype of both NP-specific helper and suppressor cells was found to be Ly1+2+I-J+(I-A-). The secreted effector molecules, helper and suppressor factors which mediate helper or suppressor function, bound to NP immunoadsorbents and are NP-specific in their function. They do not have conventional Ig determinants, but both bear determinants coded by the I-J subregion of H-2. The unusual phenotype of NP-specific helper and suppressor cells is discussed, as is the potential use of these hapten-specific T cells and their secreted effector
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease, which is associated with systemic inflammation and comorbidities, such as psoriatic arthritis and cardiovascular diseases. The autoimmune nature of psoriasis has been established only recently, conferring a central role to epidermal CD8 T cells recognizing self-epitopes in the initial phase of the disease. Different subsets of helper cells have also been reported as key players in the psoriasis pathogenesis. Here, we reviewed the knowledge on the role of each subset in the psoriatic cascade and in the different clinical manifestations of the disease. We will discuss the role of Th1 and Th17 cells in the initiation and in the amplification phase of cutaneous inflammation. Moreover, we will discuss the recently proposed role of tissue resident Th22 cells in disease memory in sites of recurrent psoriasis and the possible involvement of Th9 cells. Finally, we will discuss the hypothesis of a link between T helper cell subsets recirculating from the skin and
Infection with L. major is a well-characterized model in which differentiation of class II-restricted T cells into the two mature helper subsets is required for expression of the resistant and susceptible disease phenotype. Ii is required for stable expression of surface class II molecules and, as predicted, cells from Ii −/− mice have substantially lower amounts of surface class II that do not assume the compact conformation that characterizes stable peptide binding ((17), (28), (29)). The major immunologic consequences are twofold: a severely compromised ability to present processed antigens via the class II pathway, and a quantitatively and qualitatively altered CD4+ population due to aberrant selection by thymic epithelial cells unable to present self peptides in a normal manner ((40), (41)). Despite this drastic effect on the class II-dependent immune response, we could discern little consequence to the host in generating either Th1 or Th2 responses to L. major. How might we explain ...
Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that can be induced in animals to model immunological processes involved in human diseases such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. EAE is initiated by CD4+ T helper lymphocytes of the Th1 or Th17 subset that recognize myelin peptides through their T cell receptors [1]. These cells do not act alone, but in concert with different myeloid cells, including monocyte-derived CD11c+ dendritic cells [2-5], which activate them by presenting the myelin peptides together with costimulatory signals [6-12], and monocyte-derived macrophages [2, 4, 13, 14], which execute effector functions leading to demyelination [15]. In addition, recent studies have established that neutrophils importantly contribute to EAE [16-19], although their precise role is still unclear.. To coordinate their actions, immune cells must communicate with each ...
The CD4 antigen is a single-chain transmembrane glycoprotein with a 59 kDa molecular weight. CD4 binds to a non-polymorphic region of MHC Class II molecules and is a co-receptor in MHC Class II restricted antigen-induced activation. CD4 is expressed on the T helper lymphocytes. It is present on most thymocytes where it is frequently co-expressed with CD8. CD4 is also expressed on all monocytes, although with a lower density than on T lymphocytes. CD4+ T lymphocytes are active in inducing and helping the synthesis of immunoglobulins by B cells. CD4 is a receptor for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus type I (HIV-1) envelope protein gp120 ...

T helper and suppressor cell control of autologous immunoglobulin production was measured in 14 patients with Crohns disease (CD) using autologous B cells or monocytes to stimulate regulatory T-cell activity. A pronounced defect in suppressor cell function was observed in the patient group but not in matched controls irrespective of whether B cells or monocytes were used as the stimulus. This defect was observed for IgG, A and M. This defect was seen both in patients with active disease and with inactive CD suggesting the possibility that a primary regulatory defect might exist in this disease. The patient group displayed normal helper cell function ...
Retinoic acid solution (RA), a vitamin A metabolite, modulates mucosal T helper cell responses. A metabolite retinoic acidity (RA) is certainly created mostly by DCs in the belly, epidermis, lung area, and their linked depleting LNs (Guilliams et al., 2010). RA creation by DCs is certainly improved by inflammatory stimuli, and 50-42-0 IC50 RA signaling is certainly elevated at sites of irritation (Yokota et al., 2009; Pino-Lagos et al., 2011). The impact of Spry3 RA is certainly mediated by two classes of receptors, the RA receptors (RARs) and the retinoid Back button receptors, which work as transcription elements to regulate gene phrase. These receptors are portrayed by lymphoid cells, and latest research have got highlighted the importance of RA in controlling the homing capability, account activation, and difference of Testosterone levels cells (Iwata et al., 2004; Mora et al., 2006; Area et al., 2011b). RA promotes induction of Compact disc4+Foxp3+ Testosterone levels regulatory cells ...
The generation of T helper cells in vitro requires macrophages or macrophage-derived factors such as genetically related macrophage factor (GRF) or nonspecific macrophage factor (NMF). However, there is a basic difference of T helper cell induction when using particulate antigens. The present study demonstrates that this difference is based on the activation of two different T cell subsets. GRF activates short-lived T1 cells which amplify the induction of T2 cells, which are the helper cell precursors. Thus, the genetic restriction of T helper cell induction seen with soluble antigen or GRF lies on the level of macrophage or GRF interaction with T1 cells. NMF (or macrophages) and particulate antigens directly activate the helper cell precursor (T2) indicating no requirement for T1-T2 cooperation. The direct activation of the helper cell precursor with particulate antigens does not require histocompatible macrophages or NMF from histocompatible macrophages. The present results may explain some of the
Cytokines are small, secreted, glycoproteins that specifically affect the interactions and communications between cells. Cytokines are produced transiently and locally, acting in a paracrine or autocrine manner, and they are extremely potent, ligating high affinity cell surface receptors to elicit changes in gene expression and protein synthesis in the responding cell. Cytokines produced during the differentiation of T follicular helper (Tfh) cells and B cells within the germinal center (GC) niche play an important role in ensuring that the humoral immune response is robust, whilst retaining flexibility, during the generation of affinity matured antibodies. Cytokines produced by B cells, antigen presenting cells and stromal cells are important for the differentiation of Tfh cells and Tfh cell produced cytokines act both in an autocrine fashion to firm Tfh cell differentiation and in a paracrine fashion to support the differentiation of memory B cells and plasma cells. In this review, we discuss the role
The interactions between cytokines from the Th1/Th2 model can be more complicated in some animals. For example, the Th2 cytokine IL-10 inhibits cytokine production of both Th subsets in humans. Human IL-10 (hIL-10) suppresses the proliferation and cytokine production of all T cells and the activity of macrophages, but continues to stimulate plasma cells, ensuring that antibody production still occurs. As such, hIL-10 is not believed to truly promote the Th2 response in humans, but acts to prevent over-stimulation of helper T cells while still maximising the production of antibodies. There are also other types of T cells that can influence the expression and activation of helper T cells, such as natural regulatory T cells, along with less common cytokine profiles such as the Th3 subset of helper T cells. Terms such as regulatory and suppression have become ambiguous after the discovery that helper CD4+ T cells are also capable of regulating (and suppressing) their own responses outside of ...
St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital scientists have discovered that a protein widely known for suppressing tumor formation also helps prevent autoimmune diseases and other problems by putting the brakes on the immune response. The research was published recently online ahead of print in the scientific journal Nature Immunology. Researchers showed that the tumor suppressor protein PTEN is essential for proper functioning of regulatory T cells. This small population of white blood cells helps to maintain immune system balance by suppressing specialized T cells called helper T cells that fuel distinct parts of the immune response. The helper T cells investigated in this study included type 1 T helper (Th1) and follicular T helper (Tfh) cells. The interplay between regulatory T cells and helper T cells is crucial for both combating infections and for preventing misguided immune attacks that lead to autoimmune diseases and other problems. But details of how regulatory T cells control the diverse ...
Function of T helper cells: Antigen presenting cells (APCs) present antigen on their Class II MHC molecules (MHC2). Helper T cells recognize these, with the help of their expression of CD4 co-receptor (CD4+). The activation of a resting helper T cell causes it to release cytokines and other stimulatory signals (green arrows) that stimulate the activity of macrophages, killer T cells and B cells, the latter producing antibodies.

Mechanisms underlying the differentiation of stable T helper subsets will be important in understanding how discrete types of immunity develop in response to different pathogens. An evolutionarily conserved {approx}400 base pair non-coding sequence in the IL-4/IL-13 intergenic region, designated CNS-1, was deleted in mice. The capacity to develop Th2 cells was compromised in vitro and in vivo in the absence of CNS-1. Despite the profound effect in T cells, mast cells from CNS-1-deleted mice maintained their capacity to produce IL-4. A T cell-specific element critical for optimal expression of type 2 cytokines may represent evolution of a regulatory sequence exploited by adaptive immunity.

Therapy. The AuRx herpes therapy is thought to work via cell-mediated immunity (CMI). It is based on accumulating evidence that recurrent disease is associated with a preponderance of immune regulatory T cells [helper type 2 (Th2)] that function to downregulate the ability of the virus-specific CMI to control virus replication. The AuRx therapy shifts the balance of the virus-specific T cells to a preponderance of protective T cells [helper type 1 (Th1) T cells] and CD8+ killer (cytotoxic) T cells. These cells cause lysis of the virus-infected cells. Soluble mediators are released which produce a response cascade that includes elevated levels of interferon gamma, a stimulator of the Th1 response which also inhibits HSV reactivation from latently infected ganglia. The AuRx therapy also reduces the production of the soluble mediator IL-10 which stimulates the production of Th2 cells.. ...
Interleukin (IL)-12 is an integral factor that induces T helper cell type 1-mediated immunity and inflammatory Alvocidib diseases. recognition mechanisms and exhibited that transmission transducers and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1) signalling activated bacterial phagocytosis and was involved in the induction of abnormal IL-12 production. In IL-10 KO mouse bone marrow-derived (BM) macrophages activation induced increased IL-12p70 production compared to lipopolysaccharide combined with interferon (IFN)-γ treatment. Significant repression of IL-12 production was achieved by inhibition of phagocytosis with cytochalasin D and inhibition of protein synthesis with cycloheximide. Induction of IFN regulatory factors-1 and -8 downstream molecules of STAT1 and the key transcription factors for IK-12 transcription following activation were mediated by phagocytosis. Interestingly STAT1 was activated after activation with in IL-10 KO BM macrophages although IFN-γ SLRR4A could not be detected. These ...
Thymocytes adoptively transferred into syngeneic irradiated recipients can be primed with antigen (KLH) to generate two types of helper function termed specific and non-specific. Low doses of KLH given without adjuvant generate high levels of non-specific compared to specific helper T cells. Large doses of KLH given in adjuvant (FCA) generate high levels of both types of helper T cell. Explantations for this observation are discussed.

New study results suggest that circulating T helper cells have the potential to serve as a target for immunotherapy in type 1 diabetes.
Interleukins are a group of cytokines (secreted proteins and signal molecules) that were first seen to be expressed by white blood cells (leukocytes). The function of the immune system depends in a large part on interleukins, and rare deficiencies of a number of them have been described, all featuring autoimmune diseases or immune deficiency. The majority of interleukins are synthesized by helper CD4 T lymphocytes, as well as through monocytes, macrophages, and endothelial cells. They promote the development and differentiation of T and B lymphocytes, and hematopoietic cells. Interleukin receptors on astrocytes in the hippocampus are also known to be involved in the development of spatial memories in mice. The name interleukin was chosen in 1979, to replace the various different names used by different research groups to designate interleukin 1 (lymphocyte activating factor, mitogenic protein, T-cell replacing factor III, B-cell activating factor, B-cell differentiation factor, and ...
CD4(+) helper T cells play crucial roles for host defense and immune-mediated disease by their ability to differentiate into specialized subsets. These subsets attain restricted patterns of cytokine secretion and specific expression of master transcription factors in response to microbial pathogens. …
The specific immune response involves the action of lymphocytes. The specific immune response involves several stages. Activation of T-helper cells: T-helper cells use their CD4 receptors to attach to APCs (macrophages). This causes the T-helper cell to become activated, dividing producing active cells and T-memory cells.. Clonal selection: APC B cells have complementary receptor to activated T-helper cells and they bind. This releases cytokines and produces B memory cells and B effector cells. The B effector cells then differentiate into plasma cells which can produce antibodies. T-killer cells: Infected cells displaying the antigen of the bacteria on their surface are then labelled by the antibodies produced, and T-killer cells have a complementary receptor and bind to them. This produces T-killer memory cells and active T-killer cells which then go on to bind to the infected cells and release chemicals which cause a pore to form in the cell, initiating cell lysis. ...
