    New Zealand Black (NZB) mice are a well-known animal model of human autoimmune disease. Although the mechanism for development of autoimmunity is unclear, NZB mice are well known for severe thymic microarchitecture abnormalities. It is thought that thymic dendritic cells (DC) may play a role in...

    For centuries after its first description by Galen, the thymus was considered as only a vestigial endocrine organ until the discovery in 1961 by Jacques FAP Miller of its essential role in the development of T (thymo-dependent) lymphocytes. A unique thymus first appeared in cartilaginous fishes...

    The thymus is the primary lymphoid organ supplying new lymphocytes to the periphery. Clinical and morphologic studies of HIV-infected children and adults indicate that the thymus is affected by HIV. Thymic dysfunction and thymic involution occur during HIV disease and have been associated with...

    Before reacting against non-self infectious agents, the immune system is educated to tolerate the host molecular structure (self). The induction of self-tolerance is a multistep process that begins in the thymus during fetal ontogeny (central tolerance) and also involves inactivating mechanisms...

    T-cell and thymic development are processes that have been highly conserved throughout vertebrate evolution. Mammals, birds, reptiles and fish share common molecular signalling pathways that regulate the development of the adaptive immune system. This Review article focuses on defining the...

    Signaling via the pre-T cell receptor (pre-TCR) regulates survival, proliferation, allelic exclusion and differentiation of thymocytes. The role played by the adapter protein Shc in T cells has remained controversial, and its role in pre-TCR signaling has not been addressed. We examined Shc...

    Estrogen regulates thymic development and involution and modulates immune function. Despite its critical role in thymus, as well as in autoimmune disorders, the mechanism by which estrogen affects the thymus is not well understood. We previously reported that the estrogenic soy isoflavone...

    The thymus is a central lymphoid organ that is responsible for T-lymphocyte development and maturation. Through negative and positive selection, lymphoid progenitor cells, which initiate from the bone marrow, develop into mature T cells in the thymus, and are subsequently involved in peripheral...

    Using gene expression profiling, we detected differential thyrotropin receptor (TSH-R) expression during human T-cell development in the thymus. This expression pattern indicated a potential role for the TSH-R within the thymus, independent of its function in the thyroid gland. Here, we...
