ILC2s are a rare innate cell population capable of rapidly producing type 2 cytokines prior to the recruitment and expansion of adaptive type 2 T helper cells. As a result, they are implicated in the pathogenesis of many type-2 immune-mediated diseases, including allergic airway inflammation. Here we describe methods for interrogating and analyzing ILC2 biology in the context of allergic airway inflammation, such as flow cytometric analysis of mouse and human ILC2s as well as live imaging of pulmonary ILC2s.
