T follicular helper (Tfh) cells are critical for providing the necessary signals to induce differentiation of B cells into memory and Ab-secreting cells. Accordingly, it is important to identify the molecular requirements for Tfh cell development and function. We previously found that IL-12 mediates the differentiation of human CD4 + T cells to the Tfh lineage, because IL-12 induces naive human CD4 + T cells to acquire expression of IL-21, BCL6, ICOS, and CXCR5, which typify Tfh cells. We have...[Show more]
