How Tregs limit inflammation;http://f1000.com/5685958?key=sswwkkrpjfr7hxf T-regulatory cells can multiply their numbers by secreting the cytokine interleukin IL-35, which converts the population of T-cells involved in killing (effector T-cells) into regulatory cells that suppress inflammation, providing a new explanation for how inflammation is reeled in after an infection is cleared.
