 Title: Retinoic acid-producing DCs and gut-tropic $$FOXP3^+$$ regulatory T cells in the induction of oral tolerance Author: Villablanca Bradanovic, Eduardo Javier Citation: Villablanca, Eduardo J. 2013. Retinoic acid-producing DCs and gut-tropic $$FOXP3^+$$ regulatory T cells in the induction of oral tolerance. Oncoimmunology 2(2): e22987. Full Text & Related Files: 3601169.pdf (387.2Kb; PDF) Abstract: The systemic unresponsiveness of the immune system to orally administered antigens is known as oral tolerance. Recent findings describe a new step for the induction of oral tolerance, consisting in the homing of $$FOXP3^+$$ regulatory T cells to the small bowel and the local acquisition of full immunosuppressive capacities, a process in which retinoic acid-producing dendritic cells might play a crucial role.
