• subsets
  • According to the type of TCR heterodimer, T cells can be phenotypically divided into alpha-beta+ or gamma-delta+ subsets. (unipi.it)
  • In response to various mycobacterial antigen preparations, proliferation of distinct (T) cell subsets (gd+, ab+CD8+, ab+CD4+, NK cells) was recorded. (unipi.it)
  • However, the various subsets may also be considered part of the innate immunity where a restricted TCR may be used as a pattern recognition receptor. (wikipedia.org)
  • order
  • In order to explore if the T cell proliferation was associated with particular TCR V usage we subsequently analysed TCR Va/VB expression upon in vitro stimulation with M tuberculosis. (unipi.it)
  • One advantage and weakness of the Hayday nomenclature is that it is based on the gene order in the B6 genome, but this might not apply to other strains. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Gamma delta T cells (γδ T cells) are T cells that have a distinctive T-cell receptor (TCR) on their surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most T cells are αβ (alpha beta) T cells with TCR composed of two glycoprotein chains called α (alpha) and β (beta) TCR chains. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gamma delta T cells may be considered a component of adaptive immunity in that they rearrange TCR genes to produce junctional diversity and will develop a memory phenotype. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent work has shown that human Vγ9/Vδ2 T cells are also capable of phagocytosis, a function previously exclusive to innate myeloid lineage cells such as neutrophils, monocytes and dendritic cells Clearly, the complexity of gamma delta T cell biology spans definitions of both innate and adaptive immune responses.

  • human
  • In this study, we found TWIST was associated with a chromatin region in intron 7 of the human ESR1 gene coding for ERα. (umm.ac.id)
  • In agreement with these molecular events, TWIST expression was inversely correlated with ERα expression in both breast cancer cell lines and human breast ductal carcinomas. (umm.ac.id)
