This allows nuclear translocation of NFAT and subsequent expression of genes implicated in the activation and recruitment of T cells, resulting in an adaptive immune response.
NFAT thus enters the cell nucleus, where it binds to a synthetic control sequence and switches on the target gene the researchers have introduced.
