Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO1) and tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) are two structurally different enzymes that have a different tissue distribution and physiological roles, but both catalyze the conversion of tryptophan to N-formylkynurenine (NFK). IDO1 has been clinically validated as a small-molecule drug...

Plasma levels of neopterin and...

Microenvironmental factors contribute to the immune dysfunction characterizing acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase 1 (IDO1) is an interferon (IFN)-γ-inducible enzyme that degrades tryptophan into kynurenine, which, in turn, inhibits effector T cells and promotes regulatory T-cell (Treg) differentiation. It...
