Aire regulates negative selection of organ-specific T cells

Liston, Adrian; Lesage, Sylvie; Wilson, Judith; Peltonen, L; Goodnow, Christopher

Description

Autoimmune polyendocrinopathy syndrome type I is a recessive Mendelian disorder resulting from mutations in a novel gene, AIRE, and is characterized by a spectrum of organ-specific autoimmune diseases. It is not known what tolerance mechanisms are defective as a result of AIRE mutation. By tracing the fate of autoreactive CD4+ T cells with high affinity for a pancreatic antigen in transgenic mice with an Aire mutation, we show here that Aire deficiency causes almost complete failure to delete...[Show more]
