Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are considered potential tools or targets for immunotherapy. However, current knowledge concerning methodologies to manipulate their development or function remains limited. Here, we investigated the role of the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)-protein kinase B (PKB)-mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) axis in human(More)
Despite the crucial function of dendritic cells (DC) in immunity, the molecular mechanisms regulating human DC development remain poorly defined. STAT5 regulates various hematopoietic lineages and is activated by GM-CSF, a critical cytokine in DC development. In this study, we investigated the role of STAT5 during differentiation of human CD34(+)(More)
The plastic role of dendritic cells (DCs) in the regulation of immune responses has made them interesting targets for immunotherapy, but also for pathogens or tumors to evade immunity. Functional alterations of DCs are often ascribed to manipulation of canonical NF-κB activity. However, though this pathway has been linked to murine myeloid DC biology, a(More)
UNLABELLED Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection can cause chronic liver disease, which is associated with increased risk of liver cirrhosis, liver failure, and liver cancer. Clearance of HBV infection requires effective HBV-specific immunity; however, the immunological mechanisms that determine the development of effective HBV-specific immunity are poorly(More)
