IFNγ-primed periodontal ligament cells regulate T cell responses via IFNγ-inducible mediators and ICAM-1-mediated direct cell contact

Periodontal ligament (PDL) cells help maintain tissue homeostasis by balancing tissue inflammation and regeneration. However, the mechanisms by which interferon γ (IFNγ) modulates this process are not yet fully understood.The present study aimed to examine the effect of primed and unprimed PDL cells with IFNγ on the viability and differentiation of T lymphocytes and its functional consequences. The results showed that IFNγ-primed PDL cells possessed enhanced immunosuppression by suppressing T lymphocyte viability and directing T...

Organisms of all species must balance their allocation to growth, survival and recruitment. Among tree species, evolution has resulted in different life-history strategies for partitioning resources to these key demographic processes. Life-history strategies in tropical forests have often been shown to align along a trade-off between fast growth and high survival, i.e. the well-known fast-slow continuum. In addition, an orthogonal trade-off has been proposed between tall stature – resulting from fast growth and high survival...
