Breakdown in repression of IFN-y mRNA leads to accumulation of self-reactive effector CD8+ T cells
Tight regulation of virus-induced cytotoxic effector CD8+ T cells is essential to prevent immunopathology. Naturally occurring effector CD8+ T cells, with a KLRG1hi CD62Llo phenotype typical of short-lived effector CD8+ T cells (SLECs), can be found in increased numbers in autoimmune-prone mice, most notably in mice homozygous for the san allele of Roquin. These SLEC-like cells were able to trigger autoimmune diabetes in a susceptible background. When Roquin is mutated (Roquinsan), effector...[Show more]
