Mononuclear phagocytes often function as control switches of the immune system, securing the balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory reactions. For this purpose and depending on the activating stimuli, these cells can develop into different subsets: classically (M1) or alternatively (M2) activated mononuclear phagocytes, the molecular and functional(More)

Compared with type I cytokine-associated myeloid (M1) cells, the molecular repertoire and mechanisms underlying functional properties of type II cytokine-associated myeloid (M2) cells are poorly characterized. Moreover, most studies have been limited to in vitro-elicited M2 cells. Here, comparative gene expression profiling of M1 and M2 cells, elicited in(More)
Tumors may escape from immune control by the induction of CD11b(+)Gr-1(+) myeloid suppressor cells in the spleen. In this study, we demonstrate that this cell population can be subdivided into a CD11b(hi)Gr-1(int)SSC(lo)Ly6G(neg)M-CSFR(int) immature monocytic fraction and a CD11b(hi+)Gr-1(hi)SSC(hi)Ly6G(hi)M-CSFR(neg) granulocytic fraction. Upon in vitro(More)
