(VIB (the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology)) An international team of researchers led by prof. Savvas Savvides (VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research) has unraveled a crucial aspect of the molecular basis of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. Focusing on the immunomodulatory cytokine IL-23 they discovered that its pro-inflammatory activity, which underlies a wide range of inflammatory diseases, critically depends on structural activation of the cytokine by its receptor, IL-23R.

CD4 T cells, xenobiotic transporters, and metabolites in inflammatory bowel diseases
(Osaka University) Few studies have investigated the interaction between intestinal T cells with metabolites. Researchers have now shown in mice CD4+ T effector (Teff) cells upregulate the protein Mdr1 in the ileum to maintain homeostasis in the presence of the metabolite bile acid. Mice lacking Mdr1 display mucosal dysfunction and induce Crohn's disease-like ileitis. Their findings suggest that T cell adaptation to enterohepatic bile acid circulation in the ileum safeguards intestinal homeostasis. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
