  1. Watarai H, Sekine E, Inoue S, Nakagawa R, Kaisho T, Taniguchi M. PDC-TREM, a plasmacytoid dendritic cell-specific receptor, is responsible for augmented production of type I interferon. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2008;105:2993-8 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, PDC-TREM is responsible for IFN-alpha production, whereas TLR signals are essential for PDC-TREM expression. ..
  2. Watarai H, Sekine Kondo E, Shigeura T, Motomura Y, Yasuda T, Satoh R, et al. Development and function of invariant natural killer T cells producing T(h)2- and T(h)17-cytokines. PLoS Biol. 2012;10:e1001255 pubmed publisher
    ..In this study we demonstrated that the IL-17RB?iNKT cell subsets develop distinct from classical iNKT cell developmental stages in the thymus and play important roles in the pathogenesis of airway diseases...
