Abstract

Mucosal associated invariant T cells are unique T cells localized at high frequencies at the portals of entry for many pathogens. Mucosal associated invariant T cells display a variety of characteristics that suggest their function is to act as effectors in the initial control of microbial infection at mucosal sites.
