Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Differentiation of Thymocytes

Molecular Mechanisms Underlying Differentiation of Thymocytes A review of the main molecular events occurring during differentiation of T-lymphocytes in the thymus: T-cell specialization of early intrathymic precursors, formation and expression of antigen receptor, formation of antigen recognizing cell repertoire, and αβ/γβ- and CD4/CD8-commitment. The mechanisms of glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of thymocytes and its blockade during antigen-dependent activation are considered. A special attention is paid to the analysis of intracellular signals underlying the clonal selection of thymocytes. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Developmental Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

A review of the main molecular events occurring during differentiation of T-lymphocytes in the thymus: T-cell specialization of early intrathymic precursors, formation and expression of antigen receptor, formation of antigen recognizing cell repertoire, and αβ/γβ- and CD4/CD8-commitment. The mechanisms of glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis of thymocytes and its blockade during antigen-dependent activation are considered. A special attention is paid to the analysis of intracellular signals underlying the clonal selection of thymocytes.
