Interleukin-17 and its expanding biological functions

Cellular & Molecular Immunology

Apr 13, 2010

Sheng Xu, Xuetao Cao

Abstract

Interleukin-17 (IL-17) and IL-17-producing cells have been shown to play important roles in inflammation and the immune response. IL-17 is believed to be mainly produced by T helper 17 (Th17) cells, a unique helper T-cell subset different from Th1 and Th2 cells. Other subsets of T cells...read more

Myeloid-derived Suppressor Cells

MDSC (myeloid-derived suppressor cells) are a heterogenous group of immune cells from the myeloid lineage. MDSCs strongly expand in pathological situations such as chronic infections and cancer, as a result of an altered haematopoiesis. MDSCs are discriminated from other myeloid cell types in which they possess strong immunosuppressive activities rather than immunostimulatory properties.

Myeloid Cells And Neuroinflammation

Myeloid cells in the CNS are innate immune cells that are essential for brain development and maintenance. Here is the latest research on myeloid cells, including microglia, in neuroinflammation.

Human Immune Variation: Genetic, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Interstitial Cells

Immunomodulating Agents

Immunomodulating agents are substances that stimulate or suppresse the immune system and may help the body combat againsts cancer, infection, or other diseases. Discover the latest research on immunomodulating agents here.

Inflammation & Cancer

Inflammation has been implicated in initiation and progression of tumors, as well as elimination of cancerous cells. Here is the latest research on the role of inflammation in cancer.

Follicular T Helper Cells

Follicular t helper cells are an important subset of helper t-cells which help to the formation of germinal centers and b-cells differentiation. Discover the latest research on follicular t helper cells here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Myeloid Cells & Neuroinflammation

Myeloid cells in the CNS are innate immune cells that are essential for brain development and maintenance. Here is the latest research on myeloid cells, including microglia, in neuroinflammation.

Killing Mechanisms

Cytolytic t lymphocytes exert two main specific molecular killing mechanisms against target cells, namely (i) they can synthesize and release soluble cytolytic factors, and (ii) they can express effector molecules that act as ligands of receptors expressed by target cells on the cell surface. Here is the latest research on killing mechanisms.

Tumor Evasion of the Immune System

Tumor evasion of the immune system includes cells that operate their own growth and develop various strategies to escape from immune surveillance. Discover the latest research on tumor evasion of the immune system here.

Killer Cells

Natural killer cells express inhibitory receptors specific for mhc class i proteins and stimulatory receptors with diverse specificities. Here is the latest research on natural killer cells.

Immune System in Humans: Tissues & Ages

Mapping the human immune system spatially, within and between tissues, will provide the basis for studying mechanisms of tissue residency and the effects of aging. Find new research on analysis of the immune system by multiple approaches here.

Chemokines & Chemokine Receptors

Chemokines are a subset of cytokines which induce chemotaxis in cells expressing chemokine receptors. Chemokines can be broadly categorized into two functional subgroups, homeostatic (basal expression in lymphoid tissues for surveillance purposes) or inflammatory (released during injury to recruit immune effector cells). Chemokine receptors are G-protein coupled receptors which, upon chemokine binding, induce calcium influx into the cell. Find the latest research on chemokines and chemokine receptors here.

Neutrophils

Neutrophils are an essential component of the innate immune response and a major contributor to inflammation. Here is the latest research on neutrophils.

Human Immune Variation: Genetics, Gender & Time

Establishing the normal range of phenotypic variation within and between individuals requires consideration of contributions from genetics and the environment. Find the latest research on variations in the human immune system here.

Delayed Hypersensitivity

Delayed hypersensitivity reactions are inflammatory reactions initiated by mononuclear leukocytes. Delayed hypersensitivity is a major mechanism of defense against various intracellular pathogens, including mycobacteria, fungi, and certain parasites, and it occurs in transplant rejection and tumor immunity. Discover the latest research on delayed hypersensitivity here.
