Th-POK is a member of the BTB-POZ domain-containing zinc finger transcription factor family. It regulates gene expression during intrathymic T cell differentiation. A single autosomal recessive mutation of the Th-POK gene results in the absence of mature CD4+ helper T cells, called helper-deficient (HD) phenotype. In Th-POK deficient mice, MHC class II restricted thymocytes are redirected to the CD8+ T cell lineage. On the contrary, forced expression of Th-POK redirects MHC class I restricted thymocytes to the CD4+ T cell lineage. Inactivation of Th-POK in mature CD4+ T cells results in induction of the genes preferentially expressed in CD8+ T cells, such as CD8, granzyme B, and IFN-γ. These findings suggest that Th-POK is essential in promoting commitment of immature T cells to the CD4 lineage and maintaining the characteristics of mature CD4+ T helper cells.Product Details
