The Immunology Science Round Up
Immunity against COVID-19 Variants of Concern – T cell-mediated immunity against SARS-CoV-2 is not affected by the mutations in the B.1.1.7 and B.1.351 variants.
Atypical B Cells in Chronic Infectious Diseases – Researchers used single-cell RNA sequencing to analyze atypical B cells in malaria, HIV, and autoimmune diseases, and found similar transcriptional profiles.
Immune Development in Mucosal Tissues – Scientists showed that embryonic macrophages prepare the colon for colonization by invariant natural killer T cells in the days after birth.
A Vaccine for Trypanosomes – Researchers used a genome-led approach to identify a vaccine candidate for Trypanosoma vivax, a deadly parasite that can infect humans and livestock.
