Can the suppressive activity of myeloid-derived suppressor cells be "chop"ped?

Immunity. 2014 Sep 18;41(3):341-342. doi: 10.1016/j.immuni.2014.08.016.


Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are one of the major negative regulators of immune responses. In this issue of Immunity, Thevenot et al. (2014) showed that in tumors, the suppressive activity of MDSCs is regulated by transcription factor Chop.
