Mast cells (MCs) comprise two lineages that differ in tissue localization and ontologic origin. Derakhshan et al. define the transcriptomes of these lineages during airway inflammation, identifying distinct programs associated with each lineage and a role for TGF-β signaling in inducible MC development.

Liu et al. compare epigenetic and expression profiles in isogenic ESC-derived human microglia-like cells (hMGLs) comprising Alzheimer’s disease (AD)–associated mutations. Using this model, convergent dysregulation at the APOE locus is observed with AD-associated mutations in SORL1 and TREM2.

Alzheimer’s disease–related γ-secretase is a prime drug target whose brain regional expression and distribution remain largely unknown. This study describes the development of a molecular imaging probe to reveal γ-secretase in rodents and macaques with translational potentials in humans.

Jagn1 deficiency results in alterations in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi apparatus of antibody-producing cells, reduced antibody secretion, and aberrant IgG N-glycosylation. The data uncover a key role for JAGN1 and ER stress in antibody glycosylation and humoral immunity in mice and humans.

Radermecker et al. report the presence of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) in fixed lung tissues from severe COVID-19 patients. NETs infiltrate the airway, interstitial, and vascular compartments, supporting the hypothesis that they may drive several aspects of COVID-19 lung pathology and represent therapeutic targets.

The knowledge of COVID-19 pathophysiology is pivotal for the discovery of effective treatments. Here, we described that SARS-CoV-2 triggers the release of ACE2-depended neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) that mediate lung pathology, supporting the use of NETs inhibitors for COVID-19 treatment.

This study reveals profound alteration in biology of blood unconventional T cells (MAIT, iNKT, and γδT) in severe COVID-19. Highly activated MAIT cells are found in abundance in the airways of mechanically ventilated patients. Activation levels of MAIT/iNKT cells at admission positively correlate with clinical improvement.

Hao Guo, Sara A. Gibson, Jenny P.Y. Ting
An extensive crosstalk between host and intestinal microbiota contributes to the development and maturation of intestinal epithelium and immune system. This review details the interplay between nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat containing proteins (NLR, or NOD-like receptors) signaling to host-microbiota homeostasis.
William A. Muller
In this commentary on Hong et al., Bill Muller explains the significance of their findings as a mechanism for the non–cell autonomous pathogenesis of CCMs and the potential relevance of targeting ADAMTS5 therapeutically in this condition, for which the only current option is surgery.
Ting Zhou, Tina Tianjiao Su, Tenny Mudianto, Jun Wang
COVID-19 may result from a hyperactive but asynchronized immune system causing a cacophony of severe tissue damage without optimal viral clearance and immunological resolution. A general strategy for COVID-19 treatment is to correct the immune dysregulation at the late stage of disease.
