High levels of IL-7 cause dysregulation of thymocyte development.

Nahed El-Kassar, Francis A Flomerfelt, Baishakhi Choudhury, Lee A Hugar, Kevin S Chua, Veena Kapoor, Philip J Lucas, Ronald E Gress,

IL-7 signaling is required for thymocyte development and its loss has a severe deleterious effect on thymus function. Thymocyte-stromal cell interactions and other mechanisms tightly regulate IL-7 expression. We show that disruption of that regulation by over-expression of IL-7 inhibits T-cell development and promotes extensive B-cell lymphopoiesis in the thymus. ... Read more >>
