    Honestly I'd like someone to really spell out the links between this and Davis, M. They're both interesting and about t cells and that's where my ability to see the connection fades out.

    That actually is a really interesting article.

    Mice who have a protein (LKB1) knocked out (ty Capecchi) developed exhausted regulatory t-cells which means they stop doing their job particularly well. I think this means the regulatory t-cells lose their ability to downregulate the TH-2 immune system.

    Interesting tidbit linking the mitochondria to immune function. We have so much to learn!
