  2. 2. Genetics and functions of innate-like lymphocyte subsets

    Author : Julia Rolf; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : innate-like lymphocyte; CD1d; autoimmunity; genetic mapping; microarray; Salmonella infection;

    Abstract : The immune system contains three different branches: innate immunity, adaptive immunity and innate-like lymphocytes that share properties both with the innate and adaptive immune cells. The innate-like lymphocytes have the capacity to rapidly become activated by invading pathogens and also to modulate immune responses and thereby inhibit or promote inflammation. READ MORE

    Abstract : Peripheral tolerance is regulated by different types of regulatory T cells, including CD1-restricted T cells and CD4+CD25+ regulatory T (Treg) cells. This thesis has focused on the interactions between T cells and antigen presenting cells (APCs) and the immunregulatory function of TGF-b as two important factors regulating differentiation and activation of T cells in the periphery.
