CLEC-2 is a member of the "dectin-1 cluster" of C-type lectin-like receptors and was originally thought to be restricted to platelets. In this study, we demonstrate that murine CLEC-2 is also expressed by peripheral blood neutrophils, but only weakly by bone marrow or elicited inflammatory neutrophils. On circulating neutrophils, CLEC-2 can mediate(More)
After immunogenic challenge, infiltrating and dividing lymphocytes markedly increase lymph node cellularity, leading to organ expansion. Here we report that the physical elasticity of lymph nodes is maintained in part by podoplanin (PDPN) signalling in stromal fibroblastic reticular cells (FRCs) and its modulation by CLEC-2 expressed on dendritic cells.
