Understanding FOXP3: progress towards achieving transplantation tolerance.
Long E., Wood KJ.
Regulatory T cells (Treg) suppress immune responses, making them an exciting therapeutic target for achieving operational transplant tolerance. Recent observations have identified forkhead box P3 (FOXP3) as a master gene required for the development and function of Treg. Improving our understanding of FOXP3 may facilitate methods for identifying and generating Treg.
