Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Aire: New Tricks from an Old Dog
Description:  Aire is a transcriptional regulator that controls immunological tolerance. Its primary modus operandi is the induction – specifically in thymic medullary epithelial cells – of a battery of transcripts encoding proteins characteristic of terminally differentiated peripheral cell-types, and consequently negative selection of T cells that recognize these proteins. After briefly reviewing the classical findings, this presentation will focus on more recently discovered facets of Aire function, including positive selection of a perinatal population of regulatory T cells, inhibition of the generation of IL-17-producing “early-responder” ?:d T cell populations, and activation of MEC superenhancers.
