About this Research Topic
Most of the research on the Immunology field provide conceptual advances and offer interesting descriptions of the final outcome for several important immune process. However, it is frequently observed that these studies do not include novel insights about the molecular mechanisms that govern the intracellular transport events required for the proper function of the different immune cells. The main goal of this Research Topic is to cover new high-quality studies involving intracellular trafficking in immune cells that address novel conceptual and mechanistic advances aiming to enlarge the actual knowledge of the immune system and potential therapeutic strategies for different pathologies or infection scenarios.
- Intracellular transport in immune cells
- Regulation of endocytosis and phagocytosis by professional phagocytes

- Cytokines secretion by CD4+ T lymphocytes
- Establishment of the immunological synapse by T cells
- Antibody production and secretion by B lymphocytes
- Host-pathogen interaction, with a focus on identifying new molecular agents
- Mechanisms of drug internalization
