25429429 An increase in GITRL may impair the balance of Th17/Treg, and contribute to the pathopoiesis of Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
23935647 Our findings indicate the possible involvement of GITR-GITRL pathway in the pathogenesis of pSS.
23251213 Serum GITRL levels were higher in SLE patients.
22649191 Glucocorticoid-induced TNF-related ligand (GITRL) confers pseudoexpression to tumor cells by platelets, which results in GITRL expression by megakaryocytes and their platelet progeny.
22417213 observation suggests a link between cytokine-regulated keratinocyte GITRL expression and its role in inflammatory responses in AD
22112394 GITRL upregulation induced by IFN-beta on dendritic cells downregulates CTLA-4 on regulatory T (Treg) cells, facilitating proliferation of anergic Treg cells in multiple sclerosis treatment of multiple sclerosis patients.
21705620 Although GITR transgene costimulation can therapeutically enhance T helper (Th) type 2 cell responses, GITR-GITR ligand interactions are not required for development of Th2-mediated resistance or pathology.
21693309 GITRL expression on Kupffer cells may mediate acute rejection in liver transplantation
