TGF-β in transplantation tolerance

Abstract:

TGF-β is a cytokine required for the induction and maintenance of transplantation tolerance in animal models. TGF-β mediates anti-inflammatory effects by acting on many immune cell-types. Central for transplantation tolerance is the role for TGF-β in the induction of Foxp3 and regulatory capacity in CD4 + T cells. Recently, however, the general anti-inflammatory role of TGF-β in CD4 + T cell polarization was questioned by the discovery that, in the presence of inflammatory cytokines such as I...
