Bcl6 gene sculpts helper T cell to boost antibody production

...nto Tfh. "Not only is Bcl6 a transcription factor expressed by Tfh cells, it also has a major function in generating these cells," Dong said. When tgf is present with IL-6 and IL-21, T cells differentiate into pro-inflammatory Th17 helper cells. Another set of experiments showed that Bcl6 express...
