26974155 results suggest that LNK suppresses IL-7R/JAK/STAT signaling to restrict pro-/pre-B progenitor expansion and leukemia development, providing a pathogenic mechanism and a potential therapeutic approach for B-ALLs with LNK mutations.
26852660 Immunophenotyping with CD135 and CD117 predicts the FLT3, IL-7R and TLX3 gene mutations in childhood T-cell acute leukemia.
26499378 Data suggest that the lack of IL-7 receptor alpha chain (IL7Ralpha) expression, associated with hypermethylation of the IL7R promoter, in T cells restricts T-cell development in Schimke immuno-osseous dysplasia (SIOD) patients.
26425877 Pretransplant recipient circulating CD4+CD127lo/-TNFR2+ Treg cell is potentially a simpler alternative to Treg cell function as a pretransplant recipient immune marker for acute kidney injury.
26408663 cooperation between IL-7R and alpha2beta1 integrin can represent an important pathogenic pathway in Th17-osteoclast function associated with inflammatory diseases
26333292 A decrease of CD4(+) CD25(+) CD127(low) FoxP3(+) regulatory T cells with impaired suppressive function had been found in untreated ulcerative colitis patients.
26272555 this study shows that in human CD8 T cells that IL-7 binding to its receptor induces CD127 internalization via clathrin-mediated endocytosis, transport of the receptor from early to late endosomes and ultimately degradation of CD127 by the proteasome.
26123418 A girl with severe combined immunodeficiency was a compound heterozygote for 2 new frameshift mutations, c.589_598del10 p.P197fsX44 and c.993delA p.Q331fsX2. Each parent carried one of these.
26100671 Findings indicate that IL7 receptor (IL7R) and c-myc expression as intrinsic biomarkers that can predict the fate of CD8+ T effector cells after adoptive transfer.
25986373 Substitution of the first 10 Nterminal residues or deletion of residues 17-21 prevented Tat from interacting with and down regulating CD127 from the cell surface.
