Phagocytosis of apoptotic cells (ACs) is usually a potent immunoregulatory signal but can also promote inflammation. In this article, we show that administration of apoptotic dendritic cells (DCs) inhibited inflammation in vivo through increasing production of TGF-β from intrinsic DCs and B cells. However, ACs derived from LPS-activated DCs failed to(More)
Efficient clearance of apoptotic cells (AC) is pivotal in preventing autoimmunity and is a potent immunosuppressive stimulus. However, activation of cells prior to apoptosis abolishes their immunoregulatory properties. Here we show using the antigen-induced model of arthritis that the degree of DNA methylation within AC confers their immunomodulatory(More)
