T cell expression of CIITA represses Th1 immunity



T cell expression of CIITA represses Th1 immunity



International Immunology 16(10): 1355-1364



Despite the fact that major histocompatibility complex class II transactivator (CIITA) has been known to be involved in Th1/Th2 balance in addition to its major role as a master regulator for the expression of MHC class II genes, the exact role of CIITA in Th1/Th2 balance is still controversial.
