Activated Natural Killer Cells Predict Poor Clinical Prognosis in High-Risk B- and T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Researchers delineated the phenotypic and functional defects in NK cells of high-risk B- and T- cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients using mass, flow, and in silico cytometry, with the goal of further elucidating the role of NK cells in sustaining ALL regression.

Induction of the Apoptosis, Degranulation and IL-13 Production of Human Basophils by Butyrate and Propionate via Suppression of Histone Deacetylation

Investigators elucidated the function of short chain fatty acids on human basophils. Human basophils were purified from healthy donors by flow cytometric sorting.

Autophagy-Mediated Activation of Mucosal-Associated Invariant T Cells Driven by Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Derived IL-15

Investigators found that MSCs did not influence the proliferation of mucosal-associated invariant (TMAIT) cells but strikingly induced an activated phenotype with an increased expression of CD69, TNF-α, IFN-γ, and granzyme B.

Intestinal CD8+ T Cell Responses Are Abundantly Induced Early in Human Development but Show Impaired Cytotoxic Effector Capacities

Researchers investigated the maturation of the CD8+ T cell compartment in human fetal, infant and adult intestinal tissues. CD8+ T cells exhibiting a memory phenotype were already detected in fetal intestines and increased after birth.

Differential Expression of CD49a and CD49b Determines Localization and Function of Tumor-Infiltrating CD8+ T Cells

Researchers found that tumor-infiltrating CD8+ T cells initially expressed CD49b, gained CD49a, and then lost CD49b over the course of tumor outgrowth.

Single-Cell Analysis Shows That Adipose Tissue of Persons with Both HIV and Diabetes Is Enriched for Clonal, Cytotoxic, and CMV-Specific CD4+ T Cells

Persons with HIV and diabetes have a high proportion of CX3CR1+ GPR56+ CD57+ (C-G-C+) CD4+ T cells in adipose tissue, a subset of which are cytomegalovirus specific, whereas individuals with diabetes but without HIV have predominantly CD69+ CD4+ T cells.
