|Title:||An inflammatory checkpoint regulates recruitment of graft-versus-host reactive T cells to peripheral tissues||Authors:||Chakraverty, Ronjon K.
|Keywords:||T cells;Mice;Animal experimentation;Animal tissue;graft versus host reaction;Graft versus host disease;Inflammation||Issue Date:||2006||Publisher:||Rockefeller University Press||Source:||Journal of experimental medicine, 2006, Volume 203, Issue 8, Pages 2021-2031||Abstract:||Transfer of T cells to freshly irradiated allogeneic recipients leads to their rapid recruitment to nonlymphoid tissues, where they induce graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). In contrast, when donor T cells are transferred to established mixed chimeras (MCs), GVHD is not induced despite a robust graft-versus-host (GVH) reaction that eliminates normal and malignant host hematopoietic cells. We demonstrate here that donor GVH-reactive T cells transferred to MCs or freshly irradiated mice undergo similar expansion and activation, with similar up-regulation of homing molecules required for entry to nonlymphoid tissues. Using dynamic two-photon in vivo microscopy, we show that these activated T cells do not enter GVHD target tissues in established MCs, contrary to the dogma that activated T cells inevitably traffic to nonlymphoid tissues. Instead, we show that the presence of inflammation within a nonlymphoid tissue is a prerequisite for the trafficking of activated T cells to that site. Our studies help to explain the paradox whereby GVH-reactive T cells can mediate graft-versus-leukemia responses without inducing GVHD in established MCs||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7517||ISSN:||0022-1007 (print)
