Deletion of a coordinate regulator of type 2 cytokine expression in mice.

Nature immunology | Sep 29, 2001

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11526400

Mechanisms that underlie the patterning of cytokine expression in T helper (T(H)) cell subsets remain incompletely defined. An evolutionarily conserved approximately 400-bp noncoding sequence in the intergenic region between the genes Il4 and Il13, designated conserved noncoding sequence 1 (CNS-1), was deleted in mice. The capacity to develop T(H)2 cells was compromised in vitro and in vivo in the absence of CNS-1. Despite the profound effect in T cells, mast cells from CNS-1(-/-) mice maintained their capacity to produce interleukin 4. A T cell-specific element critical for the optimal expression of type 2 cytokines may represent the evolution of a regulatory sequence exploited by adaptive immunity.
