• ER stress in intestinal epithelial cells (IEC) drives gut Th17 differentiation
  • Th17 cells induced by IEC-ER stress require H2O2 generated by DUOX2/DUOXA2
  • IEC-ROS induce Th17 differentiation through purine metabolites, including xanthine
  • IEC-ER stress drives microbial Th17 induction even under germ-free conditions
