    Leigh A Stephens
    Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3RE, UK
    Int Immunol 16:365-75. 2004
    ..Our studies indicate that, at present, CD25 remains the most useful marker to enrich for regulatory CD4(+) T cells in rats and no further subdivision of the regulatory component of CD4(+)CD25(-)CD45RC(low) T cells has yet been achieved...

    Leigh A Stephens
    Institute of Immunology and Infection Research, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, UK
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:17418-23. 2005
    ..These data demonstrate the importance of Treg in raising the threshold of triggering of autoreactive T cell responses, thus limiting the risk of autoimmune disease due to molecular mimicry...

    J Autoimmun 29:262-71. 2007
    ..We show that each of the three pillars of immune tolerance (death, anergy/adaptation and regulation) has a role in limiting the risk of molecular mimicry by maintaining a threshold for harm...
