Development of Spontaneous Airway Changes Consistent with Human Asthma in Mice Lacking T-bet

Susetta Finotto,1 Markus F. Neurath,2 Jonathan N. Glickman,3 Shixin Qin,4 Hans A. Lehr,5 Francis H. Y. Green,6 Kate Ackerman,1 Kathleen Haley,1 Peter R. Galle,7 Susanne J. Szabo,8 Jeffrey M. Drazen,18 George T. De Sanctis,1 Laurie H. Glimcher8*

Human asthma is associated with airway infiltration by T helper 2 (TH2) lymphocytes. We observed reduced expression of the TH1 transcription factor, T-bet, in T cells from airways of patients with asthma compared with that in T cells from airways of nonasthmatic patients, suggesting that loss of T-bet might be associated with asthma. Mice with a targeted deletion of the T-bet gene and severe combined immunodeficient mice receiving CD4+ cells from T-bet knockout mice spontaneously demonstrated multiple physiological and inflammatory features characteristic of asthma. Thus, T-bet deficiency, in the absence of allergen exposure, induces a murine phenotype reminiscent of both acute and chronic human asthma.
