Emerging role of myeloid-derived suppressor cells in the biology of transplantation toleranceMDSCs, a heterogeneous population of myeloid cells, are characterized by their immunosuppressive abilities through the secretion of various cytokines such as iNOS, NO, ROS, TGF-β, and Arg-1. Accumulating evidence highlights its potential role in maintaining immune tolerance in solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Mechanistically, MDSCs induced transplant tolerance is mainly dependent...
