Recently, CD8 Tregs have also been identified and gdT cells may also mediate immunosuppression [146]. 2 The Pathogenesis of Autoimmune Hepatitis 39 T Regulatory Cells Natural Tregs are CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ and following selection as autoantigen reactive T cells in the thymus, they migrate to peripheral tissues [139]. As noted earlier, the expression of FoxP3 in natural Tregs is under epigenetic control, which might influence peripheral function of natural Tregs in AIH [140]. Inducible Tregs, designated as T regulatory 1 (Tr1) cells secreting IL-10 and T helper cell 3 (Th3) cells secreting TGFb(beta), are generated from naïve CD4 Th0 cells activated by a subset of tolerogenic DCs that induce production of IL-10 and tolerogenic costimulatory molecules [144, 145].

Naïve CD8 T cells are activated by TCRs reacting with specific peptide antigens presented in the antigen-binding grooves of class I HLA molecules of professional APCs. Since HLA class I molecules consistently contain endogenous, processed, self-proteins, the HLA class I antigen-binding grooves are always occupied. Cells infected with a virus also process and present viral antigenic peptides in HLA class I molecules. Professional APCs, including DCs, activated macrophages, Kupffer cells, LSECs, and B cells, can also phagocytose exogenous antigens and present their processed peptides to CD8 T cells in HLA class I molecules.

M. Vierling CD1d, indicating that they can activate NKT cell secretion of IFNg, IL-2, IL-4, TNFa(alpha), G-M-CSF, and chemokines. Proliferation of myofibroblasts is driven by platelet-derived growth factor. Thus, continued periportal inflammation in the hepatic microenvironment creates a positive feedback loop of myofibroblast-mediated fibrosis and stimulation of proinflammatory cytokines results in bridging fibrosis between portal tracts or between portal tracts and central veins. It is likely that the microenvironment within the wave front of fibrosis is less immunosuppressant and more conducive to inflammation than the adjacent hepatic parenchyma.
