The cytokine interleukin 17f (IL-17f) is a potentially important immunomodulatory mediator of the innate and adaptive immune responses to infection, and is also involved in autoimmune and neoplastic diseases and is a marker for immune cells associated with the Th17 lineage. Because the IL-17f is a secreted protein, it has been difficult to identify viable cells in which it is produced. These IL-17f/Thy1.1 reporter knock-in mice enable detection and isolation of viable cells that express this cytokine. These mice have been described in:
