Study Description

Resident memory T lymphocytes (TRM) of epithelial tissues and the bone marrow protect their host tissue. To what extent these cells are mobilized and contribute to systemic immune reactions is less clear. Here we show that in secondary immune reactions to the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, CD4+ TRM are mobilized into the blood within 16 to 48 hours after immunization. This mobilization of TRM is cognate: TRM recognizing other antigens are not mobilized, unless they cross-react with the vaccine. We also demonstrate through methylome analyses that TRM are mobilized from the bone marrow. These mobilized cells make significant contribution to the systemic immune reaction, as evidenced by their T-cell receptor Vβ clonotypes represented among the newly generated circulating memory T-cells, 14 days after vaccination. Thus, TRM of the bone marrow confer not only local, but also systemic immune memory.
