Immunity. 2010 Aug 27;33(2):143-145
Authors: Van Kaer L, Joyce S
The endogenous lipids that control the functions of invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells remain enigmatic. In this issue of Immunity, Darmoise et al. (2010) report that lysosomal alpha-galactosidase A destroys self-antigens recognized by iNKT cells.
