Interferon regulatory factors 1 and 4 in T cell mediated immune modulation

The transcription factor interferon regulatory factor (IRF) 1 is essential for T helper cell 1 differentiation. Hereby, the respective Irf1 knockout mouse displays a severe immune defect and has an Th2 directed immune status per se. This effect is measurable by increased production of interleukin-4,...
