Since birth, our immune system is constantly bombarded with self-antigens and foreign pathogens.

Effector T cells are the key players in steering the immune responses to execute immune functions. While effector T cells were initially identified to be immune promoting, recent studies unraveled negative regulatory functions of effector T cells in modulating adaptive as well as innate immunity. Owing to their critical and diverse functions in controlling immune responses, the functions and regulation of effector T cells ha...
