Invariant Natural Killer T (iNKT) cells perform pleiotropic functions in different tissues by secreting a vast array of pro-inflammatory and cytotoxic molecules. However, the presence and function of human intestinal iNKT cells capable to secrete immunomodulatory molecules such as IL-10 has never been reported so far. Here we describe for the first time the presence of IL10-producing iNKT cells (NKT10 cells) in the intestinal lamina propria of healthy individuals and of Crohn's Disease (CD) patients.

Abstract

Invariant Natural Killer T (iNKT) cells perform pleiotropic functions in different tissues by secreting a vast array of pro-inflammatory and cytotoxic molecules. However, the presence and function of human intestinal iNKT cells capable to secrete immunomodulatory molecules such as IL-10 has never been reported so far. Here we describe for the first time the presence of IL10-producing iNKT cells (NKT10 cells) in the intestinal lamina propria of healthy individuals and of Crohn's Disease (CD) patients.
