Memory T cells

Alert to journal editors, especially in immunology/signal transduction:

There have been three high-profile papers on signal transduction pathways affecting memory T cells recently.

We have the metformin paper in Nature from Choi’s group at Penn. The mTOR rapamycin paper from Ahmed + Larsen at Emory. And the Wnt paper in Nature Medicine from NIH.

And how about sphingosine-1-phosphate?

Aren’t these all different facets of the same thing?

Amazingly, there was just a piece in Nature Reviews Immunology on “Immunoregulatory functions of mTOR inhibition” that only says this at the end: “Insight is also needed into the role of mTOR in memory.”
