Abstract

In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Kubinak et al. (2015) demonstrate that gut microbiota-mediated signaling through MyD88 in CD4+ T cells induces their differentiation into T follicular helper (TFH) cells that promote affinity-matured microbiota antigen-specific immunoglobulin A (IgA) responses. These TFH-driven IgA responses are essential for maintaining gut bacterial diversity and a healthy microbiota.
