T-box transcription factor (TBX21) is a member of the T-box protein family, which shares a common DNA-binding domain. TBX21 plays a critical role in Th1 cell differentiation through stimulation of IFN γ.
Due to a hypersensitive immune system, the Tbx21 (-/-) rat model is useful for studies of acute and chronic human asthma, Crohn’s disease, colitis, cancer metastasis, autoimmune disorders and inflammation.
