How T cells kill cancer cells at the cytotoxic immune synapse

A new report published in The Journal of Immunology identifies the spatiotemporal events, and the role of calcium flux and the degranulation of cytotoxic lymphocytes in the process of rapid formation by these cells of immune synapses and the killing of their target cells. The cytotoxic lymphocytes (CLs) destroy virus-infected and malignant cells via an […]
