T helper 17 cells preferentially express kynurenine 3-monooxygenase. Enzyme inhibition, either with a specific inhibitor or via siRNA-mediated silencing, markedly increases IL-17 productionin vitro, whereas IFN-gamma production by T helper 1 cells is unaffected. Inhibition of kynurenine 3-monooxygenase significantly exacerbates disease in a Th17-driven model of autoimmune gastritis
