After 2 h, the cells were gently agitated and non-adherent cells (lymphocytes) were removed. Patients with established disease had higher BMI, which was expected according to the recovery of weight after disease onset and to the distribution of BMI related to age (32), but nonetheless healthy, in order to avoid the hypothetical interference of inflammatory processes associated with overweight and obesity. MM, EA, FV, and JB selected the patients and control subjects and obtained clinical data. However, the engulfment of these liposomes by DCs induces similar effects to those observed by physiological apoptotic cell phagocytosis and constitutes a good system to test the fitness of DCs. A deficiency in the in vivo clearance of apoptotic cells is a feature of the NOD mouse. Moreover, TNFAIP3 displayed higher expression in DCs from patients; interestingly, the expression of Tnfaip3 in murine DCs was reportedly upregulated after efferocytosis (35), thus reducing their rate of apoptotic cell clearance and prompting their acquisition of tolerogenic potential (36). Data are shown as mean ± s.e.m. As expected, patients with established disease had a longer evolution and significantly lower HbA1c values than patients at onset. 4 We therefore determined whether plasmin impaired the capacity of MoDCs to mount an adaptive immune response. J Clin Pathol. Cells were centrifuged (1200xg, 5 min) and resuspended in RPMI media and passed through a 100 μm strainer (BD Biosciences; San Jose, CA, USA). (A) Uninjured and necrotic Jurkat lymphocytes were stained with 10 mg/L 7AAD and 10 mg /L Thiazine Red for 15 min then subjected to flow cytometry. Front Immunol. are also recipients of National Health and Medical Research Council Principal Research Fellowship (R.L.M. Ten Brinke A, Martinez-Llordella M, Cools N, Hilkens CMU, van Ham SM, Sawitzki B, et al. To assess MoDC maturation status, we measured the extracellular levels of an array of cytokines. Phase-contrast micrographs were taken with a Leica DM-IRB microscope. Their clinical data are summarized in Table 1. PS interacts with several PS receptors —e.g., MerTK, CD36, and MFG-E8— on APCs, which promote efferocytosis, and this process confers biological advantages, such as peripheral self-tolerance induction (8, 9). doi: 10.1038/nature20138, 36. Indicative of a broad-acting mechanism, plasmin also increased the phagocytic function of multiple mouse dendritic cell types in vitro and in vivo. Phagocytosis is a critical part of the immune system. This immune dysfunction, not previously reported in pediatric patients with T1D, agrees with studies that have reported an impaired phagocytic activity in macrophages from the NOD mouse, both at early ages—before diabetes development—and at adulthood when compared to other strains (15). Culture supernatants from DCs (n≥3 for control subjects and n≥3 for patients with T1D) were collected and frozen at −80°C until use. #F8795 and F8813) were dialysed against phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and added to MoDCs (1x106cells/mL) in serum-free AIM-V media. Plasma membrane breakdown allows NCC-protein aggregates to bind t-PA and plasminogen and facilitate in situ plasmin formation [8]. Importantly, no increase in phagocytosis was observed when necrotic cells were co-treated in the presence of aprotinin, a plasmin inhibitor (that only weakly inhibits t-PA). Little is known about the potential of plasmin to alter the unique endocytic potential (including phagocytosis) of dendritic cells. We next determined whether plasmin was having a broader influence on dendritic cells by assessing the maturation, cytokine levels, morphology and viability of MoDCs. Phagocytosis is a receptor-mediated, actin- and ATP-dependent phenomenon that is triggered by the binding of particles or organisms to specific plasma membrane receptors (Silverstein et al., 1977). Phagocytes are cells that protect the body by ingesting harmful foreign particles, bacteria, and dead or dying cells. Indeed, efferocytosis prompts immunomodulatory effects in phagocytes, which drive a tolerogenic antigen presentation and anti-inflammatory mediators production (10). Paul Langerhans first described DCs in human skin in 1868 but thought they were cutaneous nerve cells. Dendritic cells (DCs) are outstanding antigen presenting cells (APCs) due to their robust ability to internalize extracellular antigens using endocytic processes such as receptor-mediated endocytosis, phagocytosis, and macropinocytosis. Cells of immune system: Lymphocytes, phagocytic cell, granulocytes and dendritic cells WBCs are the principle cells of immune system formed hematopoietic stem cell by the process of hematopoiesis. After 6 h of co-incubation, the extent of microparticle uptake was assessed within conventional CD11c+ dendritic cells. Concentration of IL-6, TNF-α, IL-10, and VEGFA secreted by DCs obtained from control subjects (white squares, n ≥ 3), patients with T1D at onset (white circles, n ≥ 3) and patients with established disease (black dots, n ≥ 3). SR-F and MV-P wrote the manuscript. J Leukoc Biol. In this study, monocyte-derived DCs from pediatric patients with T1D and control subjects were assessed in terms of PS-liposomes capture kinetics, and transcriptional and phenotypic changes. After 48 h, the concentration of IL-6 (Panel A) and TGF-β (Panel B) in the conditioned media was determined. This further supports that DCs acquire tolerogenic properties after PS-liposomes phagocytosis, even if their phagocytosis ability is impaired. Total cellular protein lysates were prepared and subjected to SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and subsequent immunoblot analysis. Similarly, it remains to be determined whether IL-10 or IL-12 is produced from DC’s treated with necrotic cells in the presence/absence of t-PA and plasminogen. Inclusion criteria were 1–18 years of age and normal body mass index (BMI). All authors revised the final manuscript and gave final approval of the version to be published. **p<0.01 and ***p<0.001 by 1-way ANOVA with Newman-Keuls post-hoc analysis. Yes Nieminen JK, Vakkila J, Salo HM, Ekstrom N, Harkonen T, Ilonen J, et al. These PS receptors are expressed in iDCs to allow apoptotic cell phagocytosis. Next, 2x106 Jurkat T lymphocytes were labelled with PKH67 using the same protocol as above. The base of an adult mouse tail was injected with 100 μL of the stipulated reagents (dialysed against sterile 0.35 M HEPES pH7.4) with or without microparticles (1% w/v) using a 25-gauge needle. The role of efferocytosis in autoimmune diseases. We next determined whether plasmin could also promote the phagocytic function of mouse dendritic cells. No, Is the Subject Area "Membrane proteins" applicable to this article? Hence, it seems likely that the low levels of plasmin(ogen) (0.1–10 nM) used in our in vitro experiments are physiological plausible. After lysosomes fuse with the phagosome, protein antigens are degraded by proteases into a … For the phenotyping of cells in BM-mDCs and in mouse draining lymph nodes, the antibodies used were: PE-conjugated rat anti-CD4 (clone GK1.5), PerCp-conjugated rat anti-CD8α (clone 53–6.7), PerCp/PECy7-conjugated rat anti-CD11b (M1/70), V450-conjugated Armenian Hamster anti-CD11c (clone HL3), PE-conjugated rat anti-CD86 (clone GL1), PE-conjugated rat anti-CD103 (clone M290), APC-conjugated rat anti-CD172a (clone P84), Biotin/IC-conjugated rat anti-CD207 (from Dendritics, Lyon, France; clone 929F3.01) PerCP/Cy5.5-conjugated rat anti-Gr-1 (clone RB6-8C5) and APC/Cy7-conjugated rat anti-MHC Class II (clone M5/114.15.2). An example of this includes the interaction of the membrane proteins of the B7 family of the dendritic cell with CD28 present on the lymphocyte. Previous studies have shown that plasmin has a pro-inflammatory influence on macrophages [11–15] and increases their capacity to phagocytose apoptotic cells [16]. Bars represent immature DCs (iDCs), iDCs after the capture of PSAB-liposomes (tolDCs), and mature DCs (mDCs) induced with a cytokine cocktail, after 24 h. Data are mean ± SD of relative Median of Fluorescence Intensity (MFI), this being MFI of each condition referred to their respective mDCs control. Shown is a representative histogram of n = 1 experiment. Interestingly, the here identified defect in the phagocytic activity of DCs from pediatric patients with T1D was not detected in adult patients (21), so we can speculate that childhood features (growth, puberty, environmental factors) and diabetes (metabolic control, immune response heterogeneity) could influence DCs behavior (44, 45). Dixon KO, O'Flynn J, van der Kooij SW, van Kooten C. Phagocytosis of apoptotic or necrotic cells differentially regulates the transcriptional expression of IL-12 family members in dendritic cells. Diabetes Care. Patients were recruited at the onset and with a longer evolution (more than 6 months). (2018) 9:1645. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.01645, 14. Taken together, our findings support the notion that misfolded proteins formed during necrosis represent a bona fide DAMP that activates plasmin and thereby promotes the proteolytic and phagocytic removal of dead cells. Nature. Collectively, plasmin produces a discrete influence on dendritic cells: by selectively promoting phagocytosis, increasing TGF-β expression, decreasing immunomodulatory receptor expression and altering cell morphology, without causing overt stress or maturation of MoDCs. Here we report that plasmin formed on necrotic cells promotes their phagocytosis by human dendritic cells. Among APCs, dendritic cells (DCs), as orchestrators of the immune response, play a crucial role in the process. Moreover, after liposome capture, the expression levels of genes of PS receptors were preserved or even showed a tendency to increase in comparison to iDCs. Finally, patients at first year had a decreased percentage of the CD11c−CD123− subset when compared to control subjects, patients at onset and at second year, and their numbers were also lower when compared to control subjects and patients at second year. RNA was isolated (RNeasy Micro Kit, QIAGEN, Hilden, Germany) and reverse-transcribed (High Capacity cDNA Reverse Transcription Kit, ThermoFisher Scientific). Harvested cells were resuspended and incubated in ammonium chloride buffer (155 mM NH4Cl, 0.1 mM Na-EDTA, 10 mM KHCO3) for 1 min to lyse red blood cells. Defective phagocytosis in insulin controlled diabetics: evidence for a reaction between glucose and opsonising proteins. For more information about PLOS Subject Areas, click However, as our phagocytic experiments (Figs 1, 2 and 6) did not involve opsonisation with immunoglobulin, altered Fc receptor signalling is an unlikely explanation for the pro-clearance effect of plasmin. The Human Th1/Th2/Th17 kit (CBA system; BD Biosciences) was used to measure cytokine production. MC-S and DM generated the liposomes. Mice were intradermally injected with microparticles in the presence/absence of 0.02 pmol of t-PA, 0.1 pmol of plasminogen or 10 μg of LPS. However, deficiencies in apoptotic cell removal promote the turning of apoptotic cells into secondary necrotic cells, whereby they lose their membrane integrity and release danger signals, thus promoting inflammation and contributing to the initiation of autoimmunity (11, 12). Two outliers were identified by Grubb’s test and excluded from the analysis. PS-liposomes encapsulating human insulin chains A (PSA-liposomes) and B (PSB-liposomes), were prepared as described (21) with the following physicochemical features: PSA-liposomes were 30 mmol/L of lipid concentration, 783 ± 104 nm of diameter and −38.15 ± 1.20 mV of ζ-potential; PSB-liposomes had 30 mmol/L of lipid concentration, 1040 ± 71 nm of diameter and −38.05 ± 0.07 mV of ζ-potential. doi: 10.1016/j.cyto.2018.08.028, 38. Human plasminogen, human fibrinogen and bovine thrombin were from Merck Millipore (Kilsyth, Victoria, Australia). https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0131216, Editor: Stephen L. Nishimura, University of California San Francisco, UNITED STATES, Received: February 10, 2015; Accepted: May 29, 2015; Published: July 1, 2015, Copyright: © 2015 Borg et al. Necrosis causes misfolding and aggregation of intracellular proteins via a process called Nucleocytoplasmic Coagulation (NCC) [7]. Several types of cells of the immune system perform phagocytosis, such as neutrophils, macrophages, dendritic cells, and B lymphocytes. (2019) 62:408–17. These signals, called Damage-Associated Molecular Patterns (DAMPs), represent an array of generic motifs that are recognised by a cognate set of humoral factors and peri-cellular receptors which, in turn, instruct the efficient removal of dead cells [1,2]. (2012) 35:2303–10. This was concluded from in vitro mixed lymphocyte reactions (Fig 4) and in vivo studies as plasmin-induced microparticle uptake after intradermal injection did not result in dendritic cell maturation or increased migration to the draining lymph nodes (Fig 6). (2012) 61:1661–3. This defect was only observed in children with T1D, and not in adults, as previously reported (21). Data were normalized to the groups where MoDCs received neither plasmin nor inactive plasmin. Conditioned media of MoDCs was assessed using the Cytometric Bead Arrays, specifically the ‘Human Th1/Th2/Th17 Cytokine Kit’, the ‘Human TGF-β1 Single Plex Flex Set Kit’ and the ‘BD OptEIA Human IL-10 and IL-12 (p40) ELISA kits II’ according to the manufacturer’s instructions (BD Biosciences; San Jose, CA, USA). https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0131216.s005. The plasmin-initiated phagocytic signalling pathway was not identified in this study. Hence, this pro-phagocytic function of plasmin does not rely upon proteolytic degradation of the phagocytic target. Confocal micrographs were taken on a Nikon A1r-si resonant scanning confocal system (microscope: Nikon Ti; objective: Apo LWD, 40x magnification, 1.15 numerical aperture, water immersion; sequential excitation: 405 nm, 488 nm and 546 nm laser lines; respective emission filters: 450/50 nm, 525/50 nm and 595/50 nm; photomultiplier tube detectors; acquisition software: NIS elements Advanced Research). For more information about PLOS Subject Areas, click It is well known that the Fc receptor performs actin-dependent phagocytosis of targets that have been opsonised with immunoglobulin. Images were processed with ImageJ v.1.47q (National Institute of Health). Blood samples were lysed (Lysing Buffer, BD Biosciences, San Jose, CA, USA) and stained with antibodies to CD45-AF700, CD3-APCH7, CD19-APCH7, CD14-V450, CD16-APC, CD11c-PECy7, CD123-PerCPCy5.5, CD56-PE, HLA-DR-V500, and Slan-FITC (BD Biosciences). (1993) 103:102S. The mean fluorescence intensity of the CD86 signal was normalized to that of untreated MoDCs. Consistent with the notion that plasmin does not cause dendritic cell maturation, plasmin generation was found to decrease expression of CD86, CD70, CD80, CD274 and HLA-DR in MoDCs (Fig 3C and S1 and S4 Figs. Impact Factor 5.085 | CiteScore 5.4More on impact ›, Targeting Strategies to Promote Antigen Uptake and Presentation for Immune Tolerance Significant differences were found when comparing the same culture conditions in the three groups (+p < 0.05, ++p < 0.01, Mann-Whitney test). The plasmin-stimulated dendritic cell, because of its immature status and because of high TGF-β levels is unable to effectively trigger lymphocyte proliferation and adaptive immunity. (DM). Altogether, our results show that plasmin-treatment increases the phagocytic capacity of both human and mouse dendritic cells in vitro. (1984) 83:321–9. As for the expression of immune-related molecules, tolDCs from pediatric patients, both at onset and with established disease, showed a pattern consistent with tolerogenic potential. Australian Centre for Blood Diseases, Monash University, Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct, Melbourne, 3004, Victoria Australia, The observation that plasmin-treatment markedly increased total TGF-β levels was intriguing since plasmin is known to proteolytically activate TGF-β [27], and because TGF-β is a potent immunosuppressant of downstream lymphocyte activation [28,29]. Nat Rev Cancer. Data Availability: All relevant data are within the paper and its Supporting Information files. Elliott MR, Ravichandran KS. As shown in S3 Fig, plasmin caused a significant increase in the number of CD11c+ dendritic cells with internalized microparticles. Dendritic cells, as well as eliminating dead cells, are also a specialised cell type capable of initiating damaging adaptive immune responses to self-antigens. Indeed, since T1D clinical course is likely to be more aggressive in children and adolescents and entails severe dysglycemia, the aim of this study was to analyze circulating DCs subpopulations in pediatric T1D at different stages, as well as to characterize their phagocytosis ability and tolerance induction potential. doi: 10.1007/s00592-019-01427-1. Phagocytosis is the ingestion of extracellular particulate material such as invading pathogens or dead/dying cells by phagocytic cells and is one of the important innate defense mechanisms. Despite further studies to draw the intricate picture of this phagocytosis impairment are needed, both the study of peripheral blood DCs and functional DCs studies provide useful data in patient's follow up, and could aid in the stratification of patients in immunotherapy clinical trials, since these results could inform about the immunological status of the patients' DCs and their ability to promote a tolerogenic response. doi: 10.1007/s00125-018-4763-3, 23. However, immune cells known as “professional phagocytes”, such as macrophages, mature dendritic cells… here. Bars show the mean ± SD. Although the triggering factors causing their activation remain elusive, antigen-presenting cells (APCs) are known to contribute to this activation, and so, to the development of the disease. Collectively, our findings support a novel role for plasmin formed on dead cells and other phagocytic targets in maintaining tissue homeostasis by increasing the phagocytic function of dendritic cells while simultaneously decreasing their immunostimulatory capacity consistent with producing an immunosuppressive state. (C) MoDCs were treated with 500 nm fluorescent microparticles in the presence/absence of 10 nM active plasmin and/or 10 mM EACA. In particular, antitumoral responses depend on a specialized subset of conventional DCs that transport tumor antigens to draining lymph nodes and cross-present antigen to activate cytotoxic T lymphocytes. Cells were incubated with proteases, LPS and/or aprotinin (see Fig legends) for 15 min at room temperature. Dendritic cells (DCs) get their name from their surface projections (that resemble the dendrites of neurons).. Percentages (left panel) and concentration (cells/μL, right panel) of total DCs (1st row, HLA-DR+ cells of CD3−CD19−CD56−CD14− cells), myeloid DCs (myDCs, 2nd row, CD11c+CD123− cells of HLA-DR+ cells), plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs, 3rd row, CD11c−CD123+ of HLA-DR+ cells) and the CD11c−CD123− subset (4th row, CD11c−CD123− of HLA-DR+ cells). Interestingly, the gold-standard experimental model of T1D, the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse, harbors a deficiency in the clearance of apoptotic cells by macrophages (15). ¶‡ ALS, MP and RLM are joint senior authors on this work. Table 2. Statistical analyses (1-way ANOVA, two-tailed Student’s t-test or Grubbs’ test; see Fig legends) were performed with GraphPad Prism v.6.01 (S5 Fig). https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0131216.g001. Here, we demonstrate that phagocytosis of apoptotic cell … These liposomes were phagocyted by murine DCs, thus arresting autoimmunity in the experimental model of the disease, and also induced tolerogenic features in human DCs from adult patients with T1D (21). This finding was replicated in human DCs from adult patients with T1D (21). doi: 10.1038/nrc2403, 42. Diabetes. Clin Immunol. All forms of PDGF and the PDGF-Rβreceptor have been detected in human MoDCs [43]. Surprisingly, we were unable to detect cleaved Annexin A2 (S1 Fig), or increased phospho-ERK1/2 (not shown) in MoDCs following plasmin-treatment. **p<0.01 by unpaired two-tail Student’s t-test. Cabezon R, Carrera-Silva EA, Florez-Grau G, Errasti AE, Calderon-Gomez E, Lozano JJ, et al. Their name comes from the Greek phagein, "to eat" or "devour", and "-cyte", the suffix in biology denoting "cell", from the Greek kutos, "hollow vessel". ANOVA was used for comparisons with several factors. The depicted immunoblot is representative of results obtained from 3–6 independent experiments. To do so, we employed a nanotherapy imitating apoptotic beta cells consisting of PS-liposomes encapsulating insulin (20). All datasets generated for this study are included in the article/Supplementary Material. mmature dendritic cells, that truly excel in this process. Within the phagosome, the particle can then be degraded. (2004) 18:1716–8. MoDCs were incubated in the presence/absence of 100 nM plasmin. Methods. Pair-wise comparison of the microarray data produced a high-confidence list of 31 signalling proteins that were differentially regulated in MoDCs by plasmin (S1 Table). (2019) 10:181. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2019.00181, 29. Protease inhibitor tablets for cell lysis were from Roche (Mannheim, Germany). For comparisons of unpaired data, a non-parametric Mann-Whitney test was used; for paired comparisons, the non-parametric Wilcoxon test was used. BM-mDCs were gated as CD11cpositive, CD11bpositive, Gr-1negative conventional dendritic cells. Department of Immunology, Monash University, Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct, Melbourne, 3004, Victoria, Australia, Affiliations (n = 9 independent experiments). However, in this scenario, autoimmunity to beta cells remains active despite the low numbers of alive or functional beta cells in the pancreatic islets, and it can destroy these remaining beta cells. After 6 h, cells were stained with fluorophore-conjugated anti-CD11c,-CD11b and-Gr-1 antibodies and subjected to flow cytometry to determine the relative extent of microparticle uptake. After 3 hours of incubation, cell homogenates were prepared and sent to Kinexus Bioinformatics (Vancouver, BC, Canada) for blinded kinomic analysis using the KAM-1.2 chip equipped with ~500 pan-specific and ~300 phospho-site specific antibodies as previously described [19]. Conversely, defects in dead cell removal underlie many diseases including lupus [3], cystic fibrosis [4], atherosclerosis [5] and bacterial infection [6]. Thus, the proteolytic activity of plasmin promotes the phagocytosis of necrotic cells. Chen C, Cohrs CM, Stertmann J, Bozsak R, Speier S. Human beta cell mass and function in diabetes: Recent advances in knowledge and technologies to understand disease pathogenesis. Clinical use of tolerogenic dendritic cells-harmonization approach in european collaborative effort. (2018) 9:127. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00127, 9. Whether this alteration is instrumental in the progression of the autoimmune attack toward the clinical manifestation of T1D is currently under investigation. 3 h later the relative number of particle-positive MoDCs (Panel A) and internalized particles (Panel B) were assessed by flow cytometry. This immunotherapy arrested autoimmunity upon administration to NOD mice after PS-liposomes were phagocyted by DCs, thus eliciting tolerogenic features. Figure 4. Summary: Like macrophages and neutrophils, dendritic cells (DCs) are considered professional phagocytes. Eur J Endocrinol. These in vivo observations are consistent with the notion that plasmin modulates dendritic cells by increasing their phagocytic capacity in a manner that simultaneously avoids their maturation and migration to draining lymph nodes. Yes Countless factors can potentially impact on the proper functionality of the DCs, which range from altered subset distribution, impaired phagocytic function to abnormal gene expression. (2017) 8:1356. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2017.01356, 35. Phagocytosis Is Required for Dendritic Cell Inflammatory Cytokine Response to Gut Commensal Yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Data are shown as mean ± s.e.m. To our knowledge, this is the first work that assesses DCs subsets in children with T1D at different stages of the disease and evaluates their tolerogenic potential. Their use for this project was approved by Monash University’s Standing Committee on Ethics in Research Involving Humans. Consistent with our in vitro data, plasmin generation increased the in vivo phagocytic capacity of all three dendritic cell populations (Fig 6; top panels). Peripheral blood DC subsets are quantitatively altered at the early stages of T1D. Exclusion criteria were being under immunosuppressive or anti-inflammatory treatment, the presence of other autoimmune diseases, type 2 diabetes, pregnancy, and compromised kidney or liver function. These exogenous antigens enter antigen-presenting cells or APCs (macrophages, dendritic cells, and B-lymphocytes) through phagocytosis. This work has been funded by the Spanish Government (FIS PI15/00198 and PI18/00436) co-financed with the European Regional Development funds (FEDER), and by DiabetesCero Foundation. JAMA. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0023366, 20. Overall, these results suggest that DCs from patients could mediate immunoregulatory attempts. Hence, plasmin dramatically attenuates the ability of MoDCs to promote an allogeneic immune response. Data are displayed as fold-change in double-positive MoDCs (mean ± s.e.m. Targeted cDNA was pre-amplified with TaqMan PreAmp Master Mix (ThermoFisher Scientific), and qPCR was performed with TaqMan universal assays (ThermoFisher Scientific) on a LightCycler® 480 (Roche, Mannheim, Germany) using the following ones: CD36 (Hs00354519_m1), CD68 (Hs00154355_m1), CD274 (PD-L1) (Hs00204257_m1), IDO1 (Hs00984148_m1), IL10 (Hs00961622_m1), LAIR1 (Hs00253790_m1), MERTK (Hs01031979_m1), MFGE8 (Hs00983890_m1), PDCD1LG2 (PD-L2) (Hs00228839_m1), PPARG (Hs01115513_m1), TGFB1 (Hs00998133_m1), TNFAIP3 (Hs00234713_m1), TNFSF14 (Hs00542476_g1), and VEGFA (Hs00900055_m1). Data was normalized to the values for untreated cultures and detergent-treated cultures. (2014) 5:566. doi: 10.3389/fimmu.2014.00566, 12. Diabetes. To mediate innate and adaptive immunity, DCs pass through two stages: immature and mature. Therefore, this study provides useful data for patient follow-up and stratification in immunotherapy clinical trials. In patients with type 2 diabetes, there is growing evidence that impaired phagocytosis in neutrophils (17, 18) and macrophages (19) is related to glycemic control, albeit it can be alleviated with improved metabolic regulation. DCs were stained with 7-AAD (BD Biosciences) and antibodies to CD11c-APC, CD86-FITC, HLA-ABC-FITC, HLA-DR-FITC, CD14-PE and CD40-APC (Immunotools), CD36-APCCy7, TIM4-APC, αvβ5 integrin-PE, CD54-PECy7, TLR2-FITC, CXCR4-APCCy7, CCR2-APC (BioLegend, San Diego, CA, USA). We would like to thank Ms Chindu Govindaraj for organising the delivery of buffy coats from the Australian Red Cross Blood Bank and Mr Mutsa Madondo, Department of Immunology, Monash University for assistance with the immunostaining of human MoDCs. Little is known about the potential of plasmin to alter the unique endocytic potential (including phagocytosis) of dendritic cells. 24 h later, the cell surface expression of CD86 was assessed by flow cytometry. (2006) 26:104–15. To our knowledge, no study to date has addressed this question. The act of phagocytizing pathogenic or foreign particles allows cells of … A ratio of 512 particles/cell (for MoDCs) and 52 particles/cell (for bone-marrow derived mouse dendritic cells [BM-mDCs]) were used for the 500 nm particles. Taking into account the many recent advances in DC biology, we discuss how DCs (1) recognize pathogenic antigens with pattern recognition receptors through specific phagocytosis and through non-specific micropinocytosis, (2) process antigens into small peptides with proper sizes and … Immunol. Finally, membrane expression of PS receptors and immune-related molecules in DCs from pediatric patients with T1D was also studied to determine whether the activation of tolerogenic signaling pathways was translated to the DC membrane. doi: 10.2337/diabetes.49.8.1325, 6. IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IFN-γ, TNF-α, IL-17A, and IL-10 were assessed. Vives-Pi M, Rodriguez-Fernandez S, Pujol-Autonell I. doi: 10.2337/db12-0397, PubMed Abstract | CrossRef Full Text | Google Scholar, 3. Results are mean±SEM. Thus, analogous to plasmin-mediated cleavage of the carboxy-terminus of NR1 [38], plasmin-mediated cleavage of Annexin A2 appears to be a non-physiological event that occurs following cell lysis.
