IL‐4 is expressed at high levels in allergic diseases and dominates the early phases of multiple acquired immune responses. However, the precise role of IL‐4 during early inflammation and its impact on the differentiation of newly recruited DC precursors remains elusive. In order to characterize the impact of IL‐4 on the differentiation of human DC, we investigated the role of IL‐4 on the differentiation of monocytes into DC. Human DC were differentiated from peripheral blood precursors under… 
Human blood CD1c dendritic cells stimulate IL‐12‐independent IFN‐γ responses and have a strikingly low inflammatory profile
TLDR
MoDC, widely used as a human myeloid DC model, do not faithfully reflect the properties of CD1c tissue DC, making the initial response to a pathogen or vaccine.
Alternatively activated dendritic cells regulate CD4+ T-cell polarization in vitro and in vivo
TLDR
It is reported here that DCs respond to IL-4 both in vitro and in vivo by expression of multiple alternative activation markers with a different expression pattern to that of macrophages, highlighting the significant impact that IL- 4 and RELMα can have on DC activation and function in the context of either bacterial or helminth pathogens.
IL-4 abrogates TH17 cell-mediated inflammation by selective silencing of IL-23 in antigen-presenting cells
TLDR
It is uncovered that IL-4 selectively suppresses IL-23 transcription and secretion by cells of the innate immune system, which is promising as treatment against harmful inflammation, while sparing the IL-12–dependent TH1 responses.
Interleukin-4 Inhibits Regulatory T Cell Differentiation through Regulating CD103+ Dendritic Cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the cytokine IL-4 involved in certain types of inflammatory diseases by orchestrating the functional phenotype of CD103+ DCs subsets subsets is orchestrated.
IL-4 Downregulates IL-1β and IL-6 and Induces GATA3 in Psoriatic Epidermal Cells: Route of Action of a Th2 Cytokine
TLDR
IL-4 improves psoriasis not only via modification/induction of Th2 cells and type II dendritic cells, but also via direct inhibition of inflammatory cytokines in resident IL-4R–expressing epidermal cells and thereby alters the psoriatic skin phenotype toward a healthy skin phenotype.
Induction of immune tolerance to rat liver allograft by sTNFRI-IgGFc and CCR 7 gene modified immature dendritic cells
Background: Dendritic cells (DC) are the most powerful antigen presenting cells, which play key roles in recognition and presentation of antigens, initiation of immune response, initiation of immune

IL-4 Is a Mediator of IL-12p70 Induction by Human Th2 Cells: Reversal of Polarized Th2 Phenotype by Dendritic Cells1
TLDR
The presently described ability of IL-4 to act as a cofactor of Th cell- mediated IL-12p70 induction may allow Th2 cells to support cell-mediated immunity in chronic inflammatory states, including cancer, autoimmunity, and atopic dermatitis.
Interleukin (IL)-4 inhibits IL-10 to promote IL-12 production by dendritic cells
TLDR
Data indicate that IL-4 plays a key role in inducing Th1 cell differentiation by instructing DCs to produce less IL-10, which was accompanied by enhanced IL-12 production in IL- 10–deficient DCs.
Role of CD4+ T helper 2‐type cells in cutaneous inflammatory responses induced by fluorescein isothiocyanate
TLDR
It is demonstrated that topical exposure of mice to FITC results in the selective development of activated lymph node cells (LNC) expressing a preferential type 2 cytokine‐secretion profile, with high levels of interleukin (IL)‐4 and IL‐10, but low Levels of interferon‐γ (IFN‐γ).
Interleukin-12 and the regulation of innate resistance and adaptive immunity
TLDR
The understanding of the relative roles of IL-12 and other factors in TH1-type maturation of both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells is discussed here, including the participation in this process ofIL-23 and IL-27, two recently discovered members of the new family of heterodimeric cytokines.
Antigen-specific activation, tolerization, and reactivation of the interleukin 4 pathway in vivo
TLDR
The capacity to activate or tolerize the IL-4 pathway in an antigen- specific fashion should prove useful in the design of antigen-specific therapies for autoimmune and allergic diseases.
IL-12 Instructs Skin Homing of Human Th2 Cells1
TLDR
The finding that IL-12 conferred skin-homing potential to already differentiated Th2 cells before inducing a switch in their cytokine production profile may explain the observed exacerbation of allergic skin diseases following bacterial infections.
Interleukin (Il)-4 Is a Major Regulatory Cytokine Governing Bioactive IL-12 Production by Mouse and Human Dendritic Cells
TLDR
IL-4 alone or together with granulocyte/macrophage colony-stimulating factor or interferon γ effectively enhanced the production of the bioactive heterodimer and selectively reduced the antagonistic homodimer of IL-12.
IL-4 instructs TH1 responses and resistance to Leishmania major in susceptible BALB/c mice
TLDR
It is shown that when present during the initial activation of dendritic cells by infectious agents, IL-4 instructed DCs to produce IL-12 and promote TH1 development, which established resistance to Leishmania major in susceptible BALB/c mice.
Interleukin-4 therapy of psoriasis induces Th2 responses and improves human autoimmune disease
TLDR
IL-4 therapy can induce Th2 differentiation in human CD4+ T cells and has promise as a potential treatment for psoriasis, a prototypic Th1-associated autoimmune disease.
Development of TH1 CD4+ T cells through IL-12 produced by Listeria-induced macrophages.
TLDR
This regulatory pathway may have evolved to enable innate immune cells, through interactions with microbial pathogens, to direct development of specific immunity toward the appropriate TH1 phenotype.
