T-follicular helper cell differentiation and the co-option of this pathway by non-helper cells
Human and mouse studies performed over the last decade have established that follicular helper T (Tfh) cells are a CD4+ helper subset specialized in the provision of help to B cells. Tfh differentiation is driven by expression of the transcriptional repressor B-cell lymphoma-6 (Bcl-6), which turns on a program that guides T cells close to B-cell areas where Tfh cells first provide help to B cells. Sustained Bcl-6 expression promotes the entry of Tfh cells into follicles and modulates their...[Show more]
