Control of TFH cell numbers: why and how?

Pratama, Alvin; Vinuesa, Carola

Description

T follicular helper (TFH) cells are essential for formation of germinal centres (GCs) and selection of mutated GC B cells. It has become clear over the last decade that precise control of TFH cell numbers is important to produce optimally affinity-matured antibody responses that are devoid of self-reactivity. Indeed, limiting the number of TFH cells appears important to impose competition amongst B-cell clones and set a selection threshold that will favour survival of high affinity clones....[Show more]
