16 S-[2,3-bis(palmitoyl)propyl]cysteine (Pam2) lipopeptides act as toll-like receptor (TLR)2/6 ligands and activate natural killer (NK) cells and dendritic cells (DCs) to produce inflammatory cytokines and cytotoxic NK activity in vitro. However, in this study, we found that systemic injection of Pam2 lipopeptides was not effective for the suppression of(More)
Evidence is accumulating that dendritic cells (DCs) from the intestines have the capacity to induce Foxp3(+)CD4(+) regulatory T cells (T-regs) and regulate immunity versus tolerance in the intestines. However, the contribution of DCs to controlling immunity versus tolerance in the oral cavity has not been addressed. Here, we report that DCs from the oral(More)
