    The development and function of CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) are strictly regulated by cytokines. Here we show that TGF-b and IL-4 play a crucial and antagonistic role in the development of Tregs and have distinct effects on maintenance of natural (nTregs) and antigen-induced (iTregs) Tregs. We demonstrated that CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ iTregs develop upon alloantigenic stimulation in the presence of TGF-b exclusively from CD4+CD25-Foxp3- precursors. Both induction of Foxp3 expression and Treg proliferation were prevented when the cells were stimulated in the presence of IL-4. IL-4 decreased the number of Foxp3+ cells in a population of iTregs while it substantially supported the survival of nTregs. iTregs inhibit cell proliferation comparably to nTregs and their suppressive capacity is not modulated by IL-4. These data suggest that TGF-b and IL-4 differentially regulate the development and maintenance of Tregs but have no influence on the suppressive activity of Tregs.
