A population of IL-10 secreting regulatory T cells (PI-Tregs) can be induced in a mouse TCR transgenic model of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) by intranasal administration of the N-terminal peptide of myelin basic protein. A paper in this issue of the European Journal of Immunology identifies patterns of gene expression that distinguish PI-Treg from naïve T cells after activation in vivo. PI-Tregs are anergic and the expression of egr2 may be involved in regulation of the cel...Expand abstract
