NK cell recruitment in salivary glands provides early viral control but is dispensable for tertiary lymphoid structure formation.
Salivary glands (SGs) represent a permissive site for several sialotropic viruses whose persistence is linked to the development of autoimmunity. Natural Killer (NK) cells play a key role in viral clearance but their ...
Triglyceride-Rich Lipoproteins Modulate the Distribution and Extravasation of Ly6C/Gr1low Monocytes
Monocytes are heterogeneous effector cells involved in the maintenance and restoration of tissue integrity. However, their response to hyperlipidemia remains poorly understood. Here, we report that in the presence of ...
Phagocytosis is the main CR3-mediated function affected by the lupus-associated variant of CD11b in human myeloid cells.
The CD11b/CD18 integrin (complement receptor 3, CR3) is a surface receptor on monocytes, neutrophils, macrophages and dendritic cells that plays a crucial role in several immunological processes including leukocyte ...
Integrin CD11b positively regulates TLR4-induced signalling pathways in dendritic cells but not in macrophages.
(Nature Research, 2014-01-15)
Tuned and distinct responses of macrophages and dendritic cells to Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) underpin the balance between innate and adaptive immunity. However, the molecule(s) ...
Intranasal peptide-induced tolerance and linked suppression: consequences of complement deficiency.
A role for complement, particularly the classical pathway, in the regulation of immune responses is well documented. Deficiencies in C1q or C4 predispose to autoimmunity, while deficiency in C3 affects the suppression of ...
Markedly different pathogenicity of four immunoglobulin G isotype-switch variants of an antierythrocyte autoantibody is based on their capacity to interact in vivo with the low-affinity Fcgamma receptor III.
Using three different Fcgamma receptor (FcgammaR)-deficient mouse strains, we examined the induction of autoimmune hemolytic anemia by each of the four immunoglobulin (Ig)G isotype-switch variants of a 4C8 IgM antierythrocyte ...
