Circuitry of cells involved in immunity, autoimmune diseases exposed
Date:3/6/2013

said Regev. "It's premature to say, 'You shouldn't eat salt because you'll get an autoimmune disease.' We're putting forth an interesting hypothesis a connection between salt and autoimmunity that now must be tested through careful epidemiological studies in humans."

The researchers plan to harness the cell circuitry data to identify and follow up on potential drug targets. Kuchroo notes that the published work and future studies are only possible because of the interdisciplinary team brought together by shared questions about cell circuitry.

"We often work in isolation in our areas of expertise, but this is the kind of work I could not have done in my own lab, and that Hongkun and Aviv could not have done in their respective labs," said Kuchroo. "We needed this unique combination of tools and technologies to come together around this problem. Looking forward, we'll need the tools and intellect of different disciplines in order to solve big problems in biology and medicine."
