Here we analyze the role of the angiotensinergic system in the differentiation of dendritic cells (DC). We found that human monocytes produce angiotensin II (AII) and express AT1 and AT2 receptors for AII. DC differentiated from human monocytes in the presence of AT1 receptor antagonists losartan or candesartan show very low levels of CD1a expression and poor endocytic and allostimulatory activities. By contrast, DC differentiation in the presence of either the AT2 receptor antagonist PD 123319… CONTINUE READING
