The phenotype of RA synovial T cells. The schematic depicts examples of cell surface antigens and receptors that confer distinct phenotypes according to antigen experience, differentiation, and acquisition of memory, migratory competence, terminal differentiation and immune senescence, and effector function. CCR, CC chemokine receptor; CX3CR, CX3C chemokine receptor; CXCR, CXC chemokine receptor; LFA, lymphocyte function-associated antigen; LT, lymphotoxin; mTNF, membrane-associated tumor necrosis factor; NK, natural killer; RA, rheumatoid arthritis; RANKL, receptor activator for nuclear factor-κB ligand; TCR, T-cell receptor; TNFR, tumor necrosis factor receptor; VLA, very late antigen.
