    ..Our results uncover a coordinated EC-IEL response to enteric infections that modulates lymphocyte energy utilization and dynamics and supports maintenance of the intestinal epithelial barrier. VIDEO ABSTRACT. ..
  8. Muller P, Mucida D. Can U Turn ILC2s Up?. Cell. 2017;171:742-744 pubmed publisher
    ..Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are tuned to quickly respond to and amplify tissue-specific signals. Work of three independent groups in Nature uncovers a novel mode of inflammatory communication between ILC2s and neurons at mucosal surfaces. ..
