Research Interest

Dr. John Mountz has identified that germinal center development is promoted by high levels of TH-17 and IL-17 in autoimmune BXD2 mice. IL-17 signals through the IL-17R receptor in B cells resulting in increased classical NF-kB pathway activation that activates several genes, including regulators of G-protein signaling (RGS) 13 and 16. Upregulation of RGS genes impairs signaling through CXCR4/CXCL12 and CXCR5/CXCL13 to arrest migration and movement of T cells and B cells, which enables prolonged and stable interaction of B cells and CD4 T cells.
