Stem-cell-like qualities of immune memory; CD4 + T cells join the party

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Similar to hematopoietic stem cells, memory lymphocytes self-renew, while their clonally expanded effector progeny differentiate to fight infection and tumors. Recently, Muranski et al. (2011) report in Immunity that a subset of Th17 effector cells function as memory cells and retain stem cell properties. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
