Dendritic Cell-Lymphocyte Crosstalk Downregulates Host Restriction Factor SAMHD1 and Stimulates HIV-1 Replication in Dendritic Cells
(American Society for Microbiology, 2014-02)
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication in dendritic cells (DCs) is restricted by SAMHD1. This factor is counteracted by the viral protein Vpx; Vpx is found in HIV-2 and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) ...
Hormonal Modulation of Dendritic Cells Differentiation, Maturation and Function: Implications for the Initiation and Progress of Systemic Autoimmunity
(Birkhauser Verlag Ag, 2017-04)
Hormonal homeostasis is crucial for keeping a competent and healthy immune function. Several hormones can modulate the function of various immune cells such as dendritic cells (DCs) by influencing the initiation of the ...
Histamine-treated dendritic cells improve recruitment of type 2 CD8 T cells in the lungs of allergic mice
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-08)
Histamine controls the function of dendritic cells (DCs). It appears to be required for the normal development of DCs. It also induces the chemotaxis of immature DCs and promotes the differentiation of CD4+ T cells into ...

Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Modulates Neuronal Networks in Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the prefrontal cortex has been repeatedly shown to improve working memory (WM). Since patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are characterized ...
NADPH oxidase controls phagosomal pH and antigen cross-presentation in human dendritic cells
(American Society of Hematology, 2008-12)
The phagocyte NADPH oxidase (NOX2) is critical for the bactericidal activity of phagocytic cells and plays a major role in innate immunity. We showed recently that NOX2 activity in mouse dendritic cells (DCs) prevents ...
Adoptive transfer of dendritic cells pulsed with Fasciola hepatica antigens and lipopolysaccharides confers protection against fasciolosis in mice
(University of Chicago Press, 2012-02)
Dendritic cells (DCs) can function as adjuvants able to mediate protection against different pathogens. Given that successful vaccination against Fasciola hepatica is mostly related to the induction of Th1 responses, we ...
Tumor cell lysates as immunogenic sources for cancer vaccine design
Autologous dendritic cells (DCs) loaded with tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) are a promising immunological tool for cancer therapy. These stimulate the antitumor response and immunological memory generation. Nevertheless, ...
A SYNTHETIC PEPTIDE HOMOLOGOUS TO IL-10 FUNCTIONAL DOMAIN INDUCES MONOCYTE DIFFERENTIATION TO TGF-BETA PLUS TOLEROGENIC DENDRITIC CELLS
(ELSEVIER GMBH, URBAN & FISCHER VERLAG, 2011)
We have previously demonstrated that IT9302, a nonameric peptide homologous to the C-terminal domain of human IL-10, mimics several effects of the cytokine including down-regulation of the antigen presentation machinery ...
Impairment in natural killer cells editing of immature dendritic cells by infection with a virulent Trypanosoma cruzi population
Early interactions between natural killer (NK) and dendritic cells (DC) shape the immune response at the frontier of innate and adaptive immunity. Activated NK cells participate in maturation or deletion of DCs that remain ...
