Transcriptional programming of tissue-resident memory CD8+ T cells


Tissue-resident memory CD8+ T cells (TRM) are localized in non-lymphoid tissues throughout the body where they mediate long-lived protective immunity at common sites of pathogen exposure. As the signals controlling TRM differentiation are uncovered, it is becoming apparent that the dynamic activities of numerous transcription factors are intricately involved in TRM formation. Here, we highlight known transcriptional regulators of TRM differentiation and discuss how understanding the transcriptional programming of CD8+ T cell residency in non-lymphoid tissues can be leveraged to prevent or treat disease.
