Dendritic cells (DCs) are crucial in the defence against pathogens. Invading pathogens are recognized by Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and receptors such as C-type lectins expressed on the surface of DCs. However, it is becoming evident that some pathogens, including viruses, such as HIV-1, and non-viral pathogens, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, subvert DC functions to escape immune surveillance by targeting the C-type lectin DC-SIGN (DC-specific intercellular adhesion molecule-grabbing… 

Pathogen recognition by DC-SIGN shapes adaptive immunity.

The signaling pathways induced by DC-SIGN are discussed and its central role in the regulation of adaptive immunity to bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens is discussed.

DC-SIGN. A C-Type Lectin with a Prominent Role in the Immune System

This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the expression pattern and regulation, receptor structure, ligand specificity, and receptor function of this remarkable C-type lectin receptor, which fulfills a large number of immune-related functions, mainly related with antigen uptake and processing and immune regulation.

DC-SIGN and immunoregulation.

These studies on DC-SIGN involved in primary and secondary immune response and relevant mechanism will certainly provide a new method in treating and preventing certain diseases.

Innate signaling by the C-type lectin DC-SIGN dictates immune responses

The C-type lectin DC-SIGN has emerged as a key player in the induction of immune responses against numerous pathogens by modulating TLR-induced activation and its implications on immunity are discussed.

AM3 Modulates Dendritic Cell Pathogen Recognition Capabilities by Targeting DC-SIGN

The results indicate that DC-SIGN is the target for an immunomodulator and imply that the adjuvant and Immunomodulatory actions of AM3 are mediated, at least in part, by alteration of the DC- SIGN functional activities.

C-type lectins on dendritic cells: key modulators for the induction of immune responses.

It is demonstrated that glycan modification of antigen can strongly enhance MHC class I responses and the induction of antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, indicating that glycosylated antigen targets C-type lectin to enhance antigen- specific T-cell responses.

C-Type Lectins DC-SIGN and L-SIGN Mediate Cellular Entry by Ebola Virus in cis and in trans

It is shown that the primate lentiviral binding C-type lectins DC-SIGN and L-SIGN act as cofactors for cellular entry by Ebola virus, andDC-SIGN on the surface of dendritic cells is able to function as a trans receptor, binding Ebola virus-pseudotyped lentivirus particles and transmitting infection to susceptible cells.

DC-SIGN Is the Major Mycobacterium tuberculosis Receptor on Human Dendritic Cells

It is shown that M. tuberculosis enters human monocyte-derived DCs after binding to the recently identified lectin DC-specific intercellular adhesion molecule-3 grabbing nonintegrin (DC-SIGN), which is likely to influence bacterial persistence and host immunity.

DC-SIGN (CD209) Mediates Dengue Virus Infection of Human Dendritic Cells

Dengue virus is a single-stranded, enveloped RNA virus that productively infects human dendritic cells primarily at the immature stage of their differentiation and DC-SIGN, a C-type lectin, may be considered as a new target for designing therapies that block dengue infection.

Mycobacteria Target DC-SIGN to Suppress Dendritic Cell Function

It is demonstrated that the DC-specific C-type lectin DC-SIGN is an important receptor on DCs that captures and internalizes intact Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) through the mycobacterial cell wall component ManLAM.
