Dectin-1 signalling in dendritic cells (DCs) has an important role in triggering protective antifungal Th17 responses. However, whether dectin-1 directs DCs to prime antitumour Th9 cells remains unclear. Here, we show that DCs activated by dectin-1 agonists potently promote naive CD4(+) T cells to differentiate into Th9 cells. Abrogation of dectin-1 in DCs(More)
Abnormal osteoclast activation contributes to osteolytic bone diseases (OBDs). It was reported that curdlan, an agonist of dectin-1, inhibits osteoclastogenesis. However, the underlying mechanisms are not fully elucidated. In this study, we found that curdlan potently inhibited RANKL-induced osteoclast differentiation and the resultant bone resorption.(More)
Dendritic cell (DC)-based immunotherapy has great promise for cancer treatment. We have recently demonstrated that dectin-1-activated DCs trigger potent antitumor Th9 cells in vivo. Dectin-1-activated DC-induced antitumor responses rely on the induced Th9/IL-9. These findings offer new strategies for the development of more effective DC vaccines in tumor(More)
