Example sentences for: activation-induced

How can you use “activation-induced” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • There is accumulating evidence that, in addition to activation-induced cell death or anergy, T-cell-mediated dominant control of self-reactive T cells represents one mechanism for maintaining immunological tolerance [ 1 2 3 ] . Studies conducted in a number of experimental models have demonstrated the existence of regulatory T-cell subsets that prevent activation of autoreactive T cells.

  • IL-2 may directly eliminate mononuclear cells through activation-induced death [ 6, 7].

  • APOBEC1, for example, is involved in the C→U editing of apolipoprotein B mRNA (therein christening the family), while another family member, the activation-induced deaminase, has a vital role in adaptive immunity in that it assists in the diversification of antibodies.

  • Although adenoviral transduction did not induce detectable activation of resting, naïve CD4 +T cells (Figure 2), we wished to further determine whether transduction altered the activation-induced functions of this population.

  • In induced models of autoimmunity, the CD28-B7 interaction has been shown to regulate disease susceptibility by rendering autoreactive T cells anergic, or alternatively by upregulating the threshold for autoreactive T-cell activation [ 30 ] . Furthermore, we previously showed that impaired Fas-mediated activation-induced cell death (AICD) of autoreactive T-helper-1 cells may be responsible for the development of PGIA [ 20 ] . Therefore, AICD and/or T-cell anergy, but not the CD4 +CD25 +regulatory T cells, may be responsible for deletion or inactivation of autoreactive T cells in autoimmune arthritis.
