Abstract

Mouse V alpha 14 T cells and their human homologs, V alpha 24 T cells, are prominent subsets of CD1d-restricted T cells. Here we discuss their striking similarities to B-1 B cells and gammadelta T cells and propose that these immune cells mediate various innate strategies in response to endogenous or exogenous danger signals.
