"CD4+ T cell immunity is dependent on an intrinsic stem-like program"
(Nat Immunol. 2024 Jan;25(1):66-76. doi: 10.1038/s41590-023-01682-z. Epub 2024 Jan 2.)

In this article:
CD4+ T cells are central to various immune responses, but the molecular programs that drive and maintain CD4+ T cell immunity are not entirely clear. Here [the authors] identify a stem-like program that governs the CD4+ T cell response in transplantation models... [The authors'] findings unravel a stem-like program that controls the self-renewal capacity and effector differentiation potential of CD4+ TEP cells and have implications for T cell-related immunotherapies.
