Antigen presenting cells (APCs) are critically involved in the interaction between pathogens and the host immune system. Here, we examined two different populations of APCs in mice that are susceptible (BALB/c) or resistant (C57BL/6) to Taenia crassiceps cysticercosis. Bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (BMDCs) from both strains of mice were exposed to T. crassiceps excreted/secreted antigens (TcES) and, at the same time, to the Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligand LPS. BMDCs from BALB/c mice… CONTINUE READING
