The development of inflammatory T(H)-17 cells requires interferon-regulatory factor 4
Interferon-regulatory factor 4 (IRF4) is essential for the development of T helper type 2 cells. Here we show that IRF4 is also critical for the generation of interleukin 17–producing T helper cells (TH-17 cells), which are associated with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. IRF4-deficient (Irf4–/–) mice did not develop experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, and T helper cells from such mice failed to differentiate into TH-17 cells. Transfer of wild-type T helper cells into Irf4–/–...[Show more]
