Article
•Uncontrolled natural killer (NK) cell activation during the early response towards acute viral infection can lead to severe immunopathology, and the mechanisms NK cells use to achieve self-tolerance in such contexts are currently unclear. Here, NK cells upregulated a co-inhibitory receptor, T cell Ig and ITIM domain (TIGIT), during challenge with...
Article
Unlabelled: Overactivation of innate immunity, particularly natural killer (NK) cells, is harmful to liver regeneration; however, the molecular mechanisms that limit NK cell overactivation during liver regeneration are still elusive. Here we show that a coinhibitory receptor, T cell Ig and ITIM domain (TIGIT), was selectively up-regulated on NK ce...

Checkpoint blockade enhances effector T cell function and has elicited long-term remission in a subset of patients with a broad spectrum of cancers. TIGIT is a checkpoint receptor thought to be involved in mediating T cell exhaustion in tumors; however, the relevance of TIGIT to the dysfunction of natural killer (NK) cells remains poorly understood...
Article
Full-text available
The maturation process of NK cells determines their functionality during which IL-15 plays a critical role. However, very few checkpoints specifically targeting this process have been discovered. Here, we report that TIPE2 expression gradually increased during NK cell ontogenesis correlating to their maturation stages in both mice and humans. NK-sp...
Article
Cytokines exert powerful immunomodulatory effects that are critical to physiology and pathology in humans. The application of natural cytokines in clinical studies has not been clearly established, and there are often problems associated with toxicity or lack of efficacy. The key reasons can be attributed to the pleiotropy of cytokine receptors and...
Article
Full-text available
Natural killer (NK) cells are cytotoxic innate lymphocytes that play an important role in immune surveillance. The development, maturation and effector functions of NK cells are orchestrated by the T-box transcription factor T-bet, whose expression is induced by cytokines such as IFN-γ, IL-12, IL-15 and IL-21 through the respective cytokine recepto...
Article
Full-text available
Histone deacetylases (HDAC) are frequently overexpressed in tumors, and their inhibition has shown promising anti-tumor effects. However, the synergistic effects of HDAC inhibition with immune cell therapy have not been fully explored. Natural killer (NK) cells are cytotoxic lymphocytes for anti-tumor immune surveillance, with immunotherapy potenti...
Article
Full-text available
The engineered “obligate” anaerobic Salmonella typhimurium strain YB1 shows a prominent ability to repress tumor growth and metastasis, which has great potential as a novel cancer immunotherapy. However, the antitumor mechanism of YB1 remains unelucidated. To resolve the proteome dynamics induced by the engineered bacteria, we applied tumor tempora...
Article
Full-text available
Natural Killer (NK) cells are components of innate immune surveillance against transformed cells. NK cell immunotherapy has attracted attention as a promising strategy for cancer treatment, whose antitumor effects, however, require further improvement. The use of small molecules with immunomodulatory potentials and selective tumor-killing possesses...
Article
Although exogenous oxidative stress has been suggested to promote the pathogenesis of airway inflammation, previous trials using conventional antioxidant therapy in asthma have been largely ineffective, suggesting the complex roles of oxidative stress in the regulation of airway inflammation and of its critical mediating lymphocyte populations. Gro...
Article
Patients with Huntington’s diseases display reduced tumor incidence mediated by unclear mechanisms. Besides, the effects of characteristic overexpression of 97 polyglutamine protein (polyQ protein) on tumor surveillance by the host immune system have not been investigated. NK cells are cytotoxic innate lymphocytes that sense and kill stressed and t...
Article
Full-text available
Natural killer (NK) cells are innate lymphocytes specialized in immune surveillance against tumors and infections. To reach their optimal functional status, NK cells must undergo a process of maturation from immature to mature NK cells. Genetically modified mice, as well as in vivo and in vitro NK cell differentiation assays, have begun to reveal t...
Article
The antimalarial drug Artemisinin has been reported to possess direct anti-tumor effects on various types of tumor cells. However, its anti-tumor potential has not been fully revealed, and its effects on tumor susceptibility to immune surveillance by the host are still unknown. Natural killer (NK) cells are the first line in tumor surveillance by t...
Article
Full-text available
NK cells play important roles in the innate immune responses against tumors. The effector function of NK cells relies on the integration of activating and inhibitory signals. Emerging checkpoint receptors and molecules are being revealed to mediate NK cell dysfunction in the tumor microenvironment. Inhibition of some NK cell surface checkpoint rece...
Article
Full-text available
Natural killer cells are potent cytotoxic lymphocytes specialized in recognizing and eliminating transformed cells, and in orchestrating adaptive anti-tumour immunity. However, NK cells are usually functionally exhausted in the tumour microenvironment. Strategies such as checkpoint blockades are under investigations to overcome NK cell exhaustion i...
Article
Full-text available
Natural killer cells are important effector lymphocytes of the innate immune system, playing critical roles in antitumor and anti-infection host defense. Tumor progression or chronic infections, however, usually leads to exhaustion of NK cells, thus limiting the antitumor/infection potential of NK cells. In many tumors or chronic infections, multip...
Article
Group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) play an important role in orchestrating type II immune responses. However, the cellular mechanisms of group 2 innate lymphoid cell regulation remain poorly understood. In this study, we found that activated NK cells inhibited the proliferation of, as well as IL-5 and IL-13 production by, ILC2s in vitro via IFN-...
Article
Autoimmune Th1 and Th17 responses are critical for the development of central nervous system (CNS) pathology in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model for human multiple sclerosis. Although macrophages play important roles in the development of Th1 and Th17 responses, whether modulating macrophage gene transcription can di...
