Academic Article


  • Defining determinants of T cell fate is central to understanding adaptive immunity and the design of effective vaccines. Tubo et al. demonstrate that intrinsic properties of T cell receptor signaling dictate whether CD4 T cells adopt predominantly type 1 helper or follicular helper T cell phenotypes in response to bacterial or viral infection. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
