Department of Dermatology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut 06520, USA
Immunity 23:611-20. 2005..Moreover, we showed that LCs act during the priming and not the effector phase. Thus, LCs not only were dispensable for CHS, but they served to regulate the response, a previously unappreciated function...

- Langerhans cells are not required for efficient skin graft rejectionJagdeep S Obhrai
Section of Nephrology, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut, USA
J Invest Dermatol 128:1950-5. 2008..Thus, LCs in the donor graft are required for long-term skin engraftment, which supports a regulatory role for LCs in skin graft acceptance...
- APCs in the liver and spleen recruit activated allogeneic CD8+ T cells to elicit hepatic graft-versus-host diseaseYi Zhang
Department of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA
J Immunol 169:7111-8. 2002..Thus, tissue-resident APCs control the local recruitment of allo-reactive donor T cells and the subsequent development of acute GVHD...
- CD8+ but not CD4+ T cells require cognate interactions with target tissues to mediate GVHD across only minor H antigens, whereas both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells require direct leukemic contact to mediate GVLCatherine Matte-Martone
Section of Medical Oncology, Cancer Center, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT 06520 8032, USA
Blood 111:3884-92. 2008..Thus, CD4 cells use distinct effector mechanisms in GVHD and GVL: direct cytolytic action is required for GVL but not for GVHD. If these noncytolytic pathways can be inhibited, then GVHD might be ameliorated while preserving GVL...

- Graft-versus-leukemia in a retrovirally induced murine CML model: mechanisms of T-cell killingCatherine C Matte
Yale University School of Medicine, Section of Medical Oncology, PO Box 208032, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Blood 103:4353-61. 2004..CD4 GVL did not require target Fas expression. These results suggest that CPCML's GVL sensitivity may in part be explained by the minimal requirements for T-cell killing, and GVL-resistance may be related to MHC II expression...
