MHC class II-associated invariant chain isoforms regulate pulmonary immune responses.

Abstract:

Asthma, a chronic inflammatory disease of the lung, is characterized by reversible airway obstruction and airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR), and is associated with increased production of IgE and Th2-type cytokines (IL-4, IL-5, and IL-13). Development of inflammation within the asthmatic lung depends on MHC class II-restricted Ag presentation, leading to stimulation of CD4(+) T cells and cytokine generation. Conventional MHC class II pathways require both MHC-associated invariant chain (Ii) an...
