AbstractThe critical role of commensal microbiota in regulating the host immune response has been established. In addition, it is known that host-microbial interactions are bidirectional, and this interplay is tightly regulated to prevent chronic inflammatory disease. Although many studies have focused on the role of classic T cell subsets, unconventional lymphocytes such as NKT cells and innate lymphoid cells also contribute to the regulation of homeostasis at mucosal surfaces and influence the composition of the intestinal microbiota. In this review, we discuss the mechanisms involved in the cross-regulation between NKT cells, innate lymphoid cells, and the gut microbiota. Moreover, we highlight how disruptions in homeostasis can lead to immune-mediated disorders.
