Lag-3 gene dampens immune responses by controlling regulatory T-cell function

...develop into regulatory T cells. The investigators found that the Lag-3 gene was "expressed" (being used by the cell to make protein) to a much greater extent in regulatory T cells than in effector T cells. The team then showed that inserting the Lag-3 gene into CD4+ T cells turned them into regulatory T c...
