Immune modulation of human dendritic cells by complement.

Abstract

Deficiency in complement proteins such as C1q is associated with the development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Here, we show that the differentiation of dendritic cells (DC) in the presence of C1q (C1qDC) gives rise to CD1a(+)/DC-SIGN(+) cells with high phagocytic capacity and low expression of CD80, CD83 and CD86. Further, when C1qDC were exposed… (More)
