"We thought these Foxp3 T-cells would inhibit activation of T cells after lung transplantation and prevent cellular rejection," said Kreisel, who is also the G.
(14,15) Treg cells express the Forkhead box P3 (FoxP3) nuclear transcription factor, regarded as one of the most reliable markers for the identification of these cell types.
To evaluate the expression levels of IL-10, FoxP3, and CTLA-4, CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells from spleens were sorted by FACS as mentioned above.
On the other hand, regulatory [gamma][delta]T cells ([gamma][delta]Treg) are the recently reported subset of [gamma][delta]T cells characterized by both expressions of TCR[gamma][delta] and Foxp3, with potential immunosuppressive functions (11).
Objective: To compare the distribution of CD4+ Th17 and CD25+ FOXP3 T regulatory cell (Treg) between type I reversal reaction (RR) and type II reversal reaction i.e.
As was demonstrated previously, T-bet is a major factor for Th1 cell differentiation and IFN-a production.[21] Similarly, Foxp3 and RORat are the master TFs of nTreg cell and Th17 cell, respectively.[9],[22] EOMES , also termed as TBR2 , encodes a TF which is crucial for embryonic development of the CNS in vertebrates.[23] Besides, multiple lines of evidences have demonstrated that EOMES deeply involves in defense against viral infections.[24],[25] Its function in CD4+ Th cell differentiation was remarkably noted recently.
In order to investigate whether T cell polarization is influenced by RC, we evaluated the expression of the transcription factors T-box expressed in T cells (T-bet) for Th1, GATA binding protein 3 (GATA 3) for Th2, RAR-related orphan receptor gamma T (ROR[gamma]T) for Th17 and forkhead box P3 (Foxp3) for Treg cells in the MLN and spleen.
Phenotypically, Treg cells express FOXP3, cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA4), certain members of toll-like receptors, CD103 ([alpha]E[beta]7integrin), glucocorticoid-induced TNF receptor family-related gene (GITR), lymphocyte activation gene-3, programmed death receptor-1, and neurophilin on their surface (9, 10).
Foxp3 expressing CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells play a central role in inducing and maintaining immune tolerance in allogeneic corneal transplantation [6].
Before considering the functional Treg characteristics as a prognostic criterion for MDS, one must take into account that the main regulator of Treg differentiation and function is the FOXP3 transcription factor [10].
