Using several tumor models we demonstrate that mice deficient in Bcl11b in T cells, though having reduced numbers of T cells in the peripheral lymphoid organs, developed significantly less tumors compared to wild type mice. Bcl11b−/− CD4+ T cells, with elevated TNFα levels, but not the Bcl11b−/− CD8+ T cells, were required for the reduced tumor burden, as were NK1.1+ cells, found in increased numbers in Bcl11bF/F/CD4-Cre mice. Among NK1.1+ cells, the NK cell population was predominant in number and was the on…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
