Systematic name M9861
Brief description Genes down-regulated in at day 0 B cell IRF4-KO versus at day 0 B cell wildtype.
Full description or abstract Temporal analysis of B cell activation in vitro using CD40L and IL-2/4/5 cytokines in wild type Irf4+/+ B cells or in mutant Irf4-/- B cells harboring a tet-inducible allele of Irf4. IRF4 expression was restored, or not, in the Irf4-/- background by culturing in the presence of low or high concentrations of doxycycline. The results provide insight in the role of IRF4 expression levels in coordinating different programs of B cell differentiation.

We need your help: Update on GSEA/MSigDB funding support

Last November we submitted a proposal to NCI's Information Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program for the continued funding of GSEA and MSigDB. Unfortunately, our proposal was not funded in this round, but we were encouraged to resubmit for the next one. This funding is critical for our continuing support and enhancement of the GSEA-MSigDB resource.

For our original submission many of you sent us emails of support, an important requirement for these grants. We now ask for your help again. We would greatly appreciate a short email message from you describing how the resource has been of value to your work and any concerns you may have about its continued availability.

Please send us your message of support to on or before Monday June 5, 2023.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.
The GSEA/MSigDB Team.
