Review

Stanley and colleagues explore whether changes in insulin levels and insulin signaling are a cause or consequence of AD.

Brief Definitive Report

Orta-Mascaró, Lozano, and collaborators provide the first analysis of CD6-deficient mice, showing that this molecule modulates T cell receptor signaling and the threshold for thymocyte and peripheral T cell subset selection.

Seddon and colleagues study mice whose T cells lack both of the catalytic subunits of the IKK complex and show that impaired TNF receptor activation of NF-κB is responsible for their block in thymocyte development.

Belkaid et al. show that type 2 innate lymphoid cells rely predominately on fatty acid metabolism during helminth infection and malnutrition.

Mécheri and collaborators generate a Plasmodium strain with a deleted histamine-releasing factor gene that elicits effective cross-strain protection.

Somech and colleagues identify two new mutations in STN1 that causes Coats plus syndrome and telomere abnormalities in human, recapitulated in a zebra fish model.

Article

mTEC progenitors differentiate to mature Aire+ mTECs through a pathway that initiates with RANK and LtβR signaling via the nonclassical NF-κB, followed by TRAF-6–driven maturation.

Loss of Ezh2 in the presence of activating mutation in JAK2 (JAK2V617F) cooperatively alters transcriptional programs of hematopoiesis, activates specific oncogenes, and promotes the development of myelofibrosis.

Skoda et al. provide new insights into the collaboration between epigenetic regulator Ezh2 and a key hematopoietic tyrosine kinase in disease initiation and progression.

Daley and collaborators show that endogenous Lin28b drives erythroid-dominant fetal hematopoiesis and that decreases in Lin28b activate adult granulocyte-predominant hematopoiesis.

Quek and colleagues identify human leukemic stem cells (LSCs) present in CD34 AML. In-depth characterization of the functional and clonal aspects of CD34 LSCs indicates that most are similar to myeloid precursors.

Harris and collaborators show that neutropenia results in increased formation of plasma cells and elevated antibody production.

Innate immune responses mediated by C-type lectin receptors Dectin-2 and Dectin-3 against fungal infections are negatively regulated by Cbl-b ubiquitination.

During viral infections, brain tissue–resident memory T cells (bTRM) prevent fatal brain infection after acquiring perforin- and IFN-γ–dependent effector functions through a pathway that involves presentation of cognate antigen on MHC-I.

Tangye and collaborators use a series of mutants to elucidate the pathways required to generate distinct subsets of human effector CD4+ T cells.

Saito et al. describe a ring of focal adhesion molecules that surrounds T cell receptor microclusters and is essential for early T cell activation.

Siglec-H is a key negative regulator of the type I interferon pathway, reducing the incidence of autoimmunity after viral infection.
