The Immunology Science Round Up
Highlights from the Gastrointestinal Tract XX Conference – Researchers presented on food tolerance and sensitization, gut cytokines and drug metabolism, the link between C. diff and colon cancer, and more.
Programming Tissue Residency in T Cells – Researchers showed that distinct programs of tissue residency are induced in CD8+ and CD4+ tissue-resident memory T cell subsets, a difference attributable to Runx3 activity.
How Prokaryotes Recognize Pathogens – Scientists showed that NLR-based immune pattern recognition is prevalent in bacteria and archaea.
