Systematic name M6227
Brief description Genes up-regulated in thymocytes: double positive versus CD4 [GeneID=920] single positive.
Full description or abstract T cells develop from progenitors that migrate from the bone marrow into the thymus. Thymocytes are subdivided roughly as being double negative (DN), double positive (DP), or single positive (SP), based on the expression of the CD4 and CD8 coreceptors. The DN stage is heterogeneous and can be subdivided into four distinct subsets in mice based on the expression of CD44 and CD25. In human, three distinct DN stages can be recognized: a CD34+CD38?CD1a? stage that represents the most immature thymic subset and the consecutive CD34+CD38+CD1a? and CD34+CD38+CD1a+ stages. Human DN thymocytes mature via an immature single positive (ISP CD4+) and a DP stage into CD4+ or CD8+ SP T cells that express functional T cell receptors (TCR) and that exit the thymus. In this study, gene expression was measured in each of these nine stages.
