We developed mice expressing Tlr4 SNPs homologous to those expressed in humans and associated with infectious and inflammatory diseases. Cellular and molecular analyses of TLR4 signaling in wild-type vs. TLR4-SNP mice revealed novel mechanisms of LPS hyporesponsiveness and altered disease susceptibility.

Human monoclonal antibody potency in vitro does not uniformly correlate with its in vivo neutralization of SARS-CoV-2. Antibody Fc-effector function is important for in vivo neutralization, and antibody combinations show superior efficacy compared with single antibodies.

The naive polyclonal CD4 T cell repertoire can differentiate into multiple lineages during acute viral infection, with some clones exhibiting a preferred lineage choice, as revealed by scRNA-seq and scTCR-seq. TCR motifs can partially skew clone-intrinsic lineage preferences toward the TFH fate.

Distinct protective humoral signatures are induced by Vi-conjugate and Vi-polysaccharide vaccines. Shared humoral features across both vaccines suggest that protection against typhoid fever is mediated through a combination of qualitative features of the polyclonal humoral response (avidity and innate immune cell functional responses) in addition to antibody quantity.

By characterizing gut microbiome composition across 946 healthy donors, Byrd et al. demonstrate strong influences of age and biological sex. Additionally, they define global shifts in the gut microbiome composition of patients with non-gastrointestinal tumors compared with healthy donors.

Maccari et al. identify a physiological population of highly proliferative CD38+CD45RA+, IL-10–producing TCRαβ+ T cells. They can be CD4+, CD8+, or double-negative and are controlled by FAS and CTLA4, while their survival is enhanced by mTOR and STAT3 signals.

This work presents robust tools for the transduction and expansion of murine CAR-T cells and demonstrates the impact of murine IL-15 co-expression on CAR-T cell expansion, phenotype, function, and tumor microenvironment reprogramming in immunocompetent mice.

The pathways involved in the persistence of memory B cells are largely unknown. In this issue, two groups (Müller-Winkler et al. and Lau et al.) take complementary approaches to identify an essential role for BAFFR in the survival of memory B cells.
