Investigations into the mechanisms of immunological tolerance are currently hindered by a paucity of convenient markers, both for the identification and isolation of tolerant cell types and for monitoring the establishment of tolerance in in vivo models. Although high-affinity autoreactive T cells are deleted in the thymus during the establishment of central tolerance, escaping autoreactive cells require modulation in the periphery. Dendritic cells (DC) and regulatory T cells (Treg) are both ...Expand abstract
