Cellular immunology and immune regulation

Section edited by J Philip McCoy

This section aims to publish studies concerned with the immunological activities of cells and on the interactions among cells and molecules of the immune system, which spans studies in development, differentiation, effector function, and memory. The section also welcomes submissions on antibody and cell-mediated immune responses.

    Mercury alters endogenous phosphorylation profiles of SYK in murine B cells

    Epidemiological evidence and animal models suggest that exposure to low and non-neurotoxic concentrations of mercury may contribute to idiosyncratic autoimmune disease. Since defects in function and signaling ...

    Immune modulation of CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells by zoledronic acid

    CD4+CD25+ regulatory T (Treg) cells suppress tumor immunity by inhibiting immune cells. Manipulation of Treg cells represents a new strategy for cancer treatment. Zoledronic acid (ZA), a nitrogen-containing bisph...
