Experts cannot yet definitively determine the function of the cells found Some suggest that they contribute to the development of cancer and other serious diseases.
Scientists from the University of California at Los Angeles (USA) conducted a unique study that helped them identify a new type of immunity cell, which they called phosphalipid-reactive T cells. It is reported that they can recognize molecules that make it possible for the body to form a cell membrane, but their main role is to promote the development of several serious diseases. Among them were cancer, hepatitis.
As previously proved, the cell membrane consists of phospholipids and glycolipids, and inside them are binding compounds with CD1d molecules, which transfer them to molecules. It is then that phospholipids stimulate reactive T-cells, and glycolipids another type called iNKT. On the other hand, they are extremely active and as a result can cause hepatitis and other types of liver diseases. However, the ability of phospholipids to more easily bind to the CD1d molecule compared to glycolipids maintains a balance between the two types of cells and maintains homeostasis in the immune system. Further research is needed to determine the function of phospholipid-reactive T cells in patients with cancer, hepatitis and autoimmune diseases, the authors emphasize.
The versatility of the components of the immune system inspires scientists to regularly research its features. It is known that the immune system protects a person from pathogens and cellular debris, however, new studies show that without certain immune cells, normal functioning of healthy tissues is also impossible.
