Thymic Development of Unconventional T Cells: How NKT Cells, MAIT Cells and γδ T Cells Emerge

Scientists describe the thymic development of NK T cells, mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells and γδ T cells and highlight some of the key differences between conventional and unconventional T cell development.

Apatinib Prevents Natural Killer Cell Dysfunction to Enhance the Efficacy of Anti-PD-1 Immunotherapy in Hepatocellular Carcinoma

Using a syngeneic hepatoceullar carcinoma (HCC) mouse model, the authors demonstrated that treatment with apatinib resulted in attenuation of tumor growth and increased tumor vessel normalization. Results indicated that NK cells, but not CD4+ or CD8+ T cells mediated the therapeutic efficacy of apatinib in HCC mouse models.

NKG2D Signaling Within the Pancreatic Islets Reduces NOD Diabetes and Increases Protective Central Memory CD8+ T Cell Numbers

To directly assess the role of NKG2D in the pancreas, scientists generated NOD mice that expressed an NKG2D ligand in β-islet cells.
