The disruption of the JunB gene prevents T-Helper Rogue cells to become toxic.

1) The normal process in which JunB can activate the Interleukin 23 (IL23) receptor gene to make the T Helper 17 cell sensitive to Interleukin 23. This potentially lead to the T Helper 17 cell to turn toxic. 2) Knocking down JunB prevents the production of Interleukin-23 receptors, and the T-Helper 17 cell cannot turn rogue any longer, but is still able to fight infections.
