The plasticity and migratory responses of innate lymphoid cells: more similarity to T cells than you thought
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series The identification of innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) was a major step forward in developing a better understanding of host defense. Although ILC lack the capacity for antigen recognition, they show striking similarities with T cell subsets in both the transcription factors that govern their differentiation and the effector cytokines they produce. One major difference in the existing concepts of ILC and adaptive T cell responses is that the former are considered to act largely as tissue resident effectors whereas T cells migrate from secondary lymphoid tissues of activation to peripher...

Likewise, how are such cells able to respond to acute stress but not drive constitutive tissue inflammation? And, how do immune cell &nd...

However, direct evidence for BCR signalling in human lymphoma has only come to light recently. Roles for antigen-dependent and antigen-independent, or tonic, BCR signalling have now been described for several different lymphoma subtypes. Furthermore, correlative data implicat...
