Collection description

Peripheral frequency of a regulatory T cell population, characterized by the co-expression of CD3 and CD56, is reduced in subjects with new-onset type 1 diabetes (T1D). In three independent T1D cohorts, we find that low frequency of circulating TR3-56 cells is associated with reduced β-cell function and with the presence of diabetic ketoacidosis. We demonstrate that TR3-56 cells can suppress CD8+ T cell functions in vitro by reducing levels of intracellular reactive oxygen species. The suppressive function, phenotype and transcriptional signature of TR3-56 cells are also altered in T1D children. Together, our findings indicate that TR3-56 cells constitute a regulatory cell population that controls CD8+ effector functions, whose peripheral frequency may represent a traceable biomarker for monitoring immunological self-tolerance in T1D.
