T Follicular Helper Cells During Immunity and Tolerance

Linterman, Michelle; Garcia De Vinuesa, Maria Carola

Description

Helper T cells are required for the generation of a potent immune response to foreign antigens. Amongst them, T follicular helper (Tfh) cells are specialized in promoting protective, long-lived antibody responses that arise from germinal centers. Within these structures, the specificity of B cell receptors may change, due to the process of random somatic hypermutation aimed at increasing the overall affinity of the antibody response. The danger of emerging self-reactive specificities is offset...[Show more]
