The Trithorax Cxxc1 molecule specifically regulates the chromatin accessibility of the genes that are downregulated during priming and reactivated in the later phase in differentiating CD4 T cells. The authors show Cxxc1 deletion induces CD4 T cell hyperactivation and enhanced allergic airway inflammation.
Technical Advances and Resources
Rih-Sheng Huang, Min-Chi Lai, Hsin-An Shih, Steven Lin
Huang et al. report an integrated, robust CRISPR genome editing platform for natural killer (NK) cells that combines the advantages of feeder-free ex vivo expansion and Cas9 RNP nucleofection to replace inefficient plasmid transfection and viral transduction, which have long hindered the advance of NK cell research.

Neurological symptoms are frequently observed in COVID-19. Here, we examine the neuroinvasive potential of SARS-CoV-2 and demonstrate infection of neurons in three separate approaches: mouse model, human brain organoid, and autopsy of COVID-19 patients.

Mead
Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia is a rare cancer of childhood with a poor prognosis. Through phenotypic, functional, and molecular analyses of blood and bone marrow samples, Louka et al. identify and characterize the disease-propagating population(s), paving the way for leukemia stem cell–directed disease monitoring and therapy.

NK cells are able to upregulate SIRPα, which transmits a strong inhibitory signal upon CD47 engagement. Modulation of this immune checkpoint can enable the generation of universal allogeneic regenerative cell products or enhance NK cell–mediated tumor cell killing.
Nuo Xu, Douglas C. Palmer, Alexander C. Robeson, Peishun Shou, Hemamalini Bommiasamy, Sonia J. Laurie, Caryn Willis, Gianpietro Dotti, Benjamin G. Vincent, Nicholas P. Restifo, Jonathan S. Serody
CAR T cell therapy remains suboptimal for the treatment of solid tumors. Xu et al. demonstrate that CAR T cell migration and persistence in locally advanced breast cancer are enhanced by coadministration of CAR T cells with STING agonists.
Brief Definitive Report
Anthony J. Michaels, Clarissa Campbell, Regina Bou-Puerto, Alexander Y. Rudensky
The nuclear receptor liver X receptor β (LXRβ) is a critical regulator of cholesterol homeostasis in mammalian cells. Here, we report that pan-T cell– and T reg cell–specific LXRβ ablation leads to a survival defect of LXRβ-deficient effector T cells and impaired T reg cell functionality.

Leukemia stem cells are heterogeneous and reside within the phenotypic hematopoietic stem cell and progenitor cell compartments in juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia.
Luigi Fontana, Laura Ghezzi, Anne H. Cross, Laura Piccio
Diet is an important modulator of systemic and central nervous system inflammation, with profound effects in metabolism, immunity, and the gut microbiome. Fontana et al. discuss recent findings on the relationship between calorie intake and the mechanisms underlying neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration.
Miguel Palomino-Segura, Andrés Hidalgo
Neuroendocrine, immune, and structural cells establish circadian circuits that optimize immune and physiological responses. In this review, Palomino-Segura and Hidalgo discuss the architecture of these circuits and speculate that immune cells can be a source of circadian signals in physiology.
