FcRn and CD32a form a ternary complex under acidic conditions and act together in determining responses to IgG immune complexes. The human autoimmune disease–associated CD32a-H131 variant more avidly forms this ternary complex, leading to greater FcRn-dependent immune responses to IgG.

CCMs arise due to increased MEKK3-KLF2/4 signaling in brain endothelial cells, but the downstream mechanisms of CCM formation remain unclear. Hong et al. show that expression of the ADAMTS5 protease and proteolytic cleavage of the matrix proteoglycan versican by CCM-deficient endothelial cells contribute to CCM formation.

This work describes the spatiotemporal orchestration of recently recruited monocyte-derived and resident macrophages during Wallerian degeneration induced by chronic constriction injury of the sciatic nerve and unveils distinct contribution of these two macrophage subsets in myelin degradation and neurofiber regeneration.

We explored the nature of the human CD4 T cell immunodominance to influenza H1 hemagglutinin and demonstrate that the naïve repertoire is very broad, while the memory repertoire becomes selected toward peptides with a high likelihood to be processed and presented by dendritic cells.

LCN2 is an osteoblast-enriched secreted protein that regulates food intake. Here, the authors show that LCN2 is upregulated during obesity and diabetes as a protective mechanism to counteract obesity-induced glucose intolerance by decreasing food intake and promoting adaptive β-cell proliferation.

The authors reveal a mechanism of SIgA–microbiota interaction in the adult human gut. They describe antibodies with a high capacity to bind phylogenetically distant members of the microbiota. Such cross-species reactivity does not correlate with antibody polyreactivity but crucially depends on somatic mutations.

Patients with severe developmental delay, dysmorphism, and brain abnormalities were identified as having pathogenic mutations in EXOC2, a critical component of the exocyst complex involved in vesicle trafficking, which caused secretory vesicle transport defects in patient-derived cell lines.
