Increased and long-term generation of dendritic cells with reduced function from IL-6-deficient bone marrow.


The importance of IL-6 in dendritic cell (DC) development and function has not been well defined. To establish the role of IL-6, we studied bone marrow-derived DC (BMDC) and freshly isolated splenic DC from IL-6(-/-)-transgenic mice. We found that although IL-6(-/-) bone marrow had a similar composition to that of wild-type (WT) mice, it generated up to 10… (More)
