Mucosal associated invariant T cell
Mucosal associated invariant T cells (MAITs) are a special type of T cell, which have a canonical T cell receptor (Vα19-Jα33 in mice and Vα7.2-Jα33 in humans), and which appear to play a regulatory role in immunity. They are dependent on gut microbiota, being absent in germ-free mice.
