Innate Mucosal-Associated Invariant T (MAIT) cells are activated in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases.

Authors: Serriari NE, Eoche M, Lamotte L, Fumery M, Marcelo P, Chatelain D, Barre A, Nguyen-Khac E, Lantz O, Dupas JL, Treiner E Abstract Inflammatory Bowel Diseases are characterized by a deregulated immune response targeting the gut bacterial flora. Mucosal-Associated Invariant T (MAIT) cells are MHC class Ib-restricted innate-like lymphocytes with anti-bacterial functions. They display an effector/memory phenotype and are found in large numbers in the blood, mucosae and liver. They also have been implicated in inflammatory diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Therefore, we aimed at analyzing the possible involvement of MAIT cells in Crohn’s Disease (CD) and Ulcerative Colitis (UC). To this end, a phenotypic and functional analysis of MAIT cells isolated from the blood of healthy…
