Our latest contribution to Cell: Human TBET deficiency
We are thrilled to announce that this large collaborative effort led by Dr Jean-Laurent Casanova (Rockefeller University) is now published in Cell: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867420314537
This article reports the first case of human TBET deficiency. This inherited deficiency caused by a loss-of-function mutation in the gene TBX21 (encoding the transcription factor TBET) underlies severe mycobacterial disease. The mutation affects the development of a variety of IFNg-producing lymphocyte subsets and the production of IFNg by innate and innate-like lymphocytes are impaired.
We would like to thank the expert contribution of Dr Mathieu Bourgey from the Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics (C3G), McGill Genome Center!
