Beta-catenin alters T cells in lasting and harmful ways

Study helps explain chronic inflammation in autoimmunity and cancer


Activation of beta-catenin, the primary mediator of the ubiquitous Wnt signaling pathway, alters the immune system in lasting and harmful ways, a team of Chicago-based researchers demonstrate in the issue of Science Translational Medicine. An increase in beta-catenin in certain types of T cells—a ...
