Although T cells are important in preventing tuberculosis progression, their role in disease tolerance is unknown. Recently in Science Immunology, Tzelepis et al. (2018) have revealed that mitochondrial cyclophilin D controls T cell metabolism and proliferation, contributing to tolerance. Cyclophilin D loss leads to immunopathology and increased mortality, without impacting bacterial burden.
