Cell cover on critical regulators of Th17 cell pathogenicity, December 3, 2015

Our artwork is featured on this month’s issue of Cell about critical regulators of Th17 cell pathogenicity. Two types of Th17 cells are depicted with the ones in the background having a normal lipid metabolism, whereas the one in the front shows a defect in CD5L or even missing. CD5L acts as a switch to change lipid metabolism in order to regulate Th17 function.

The illustration is inspired by  3D micrographs of T cells and overlay of a circuitry with the missing or decreased CD5L in the center. You can find the original issue here.
