Silicon nanowires expand understanding of immune cells' circuitry

New findings expand the understanding of how one type of immune cell - known as a T helper 17 or Th17 cell - develops, and how its growth influences the development of immune responses. By figuring out how these cells are "wired", the researchers make a surprising connection between autoimmunity and salt consumption, highlighting the interplay of genetics and environmental factors in disease susceptibility.
