Group B Streptococcus (GBS) type III is an important agent of life-threatening invasive infections. Albeit the immune system plays a dual role in development and protection against disease, mechanisms leading to an efficient immune response against GBS remain obscure. Mouse bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (DCs) and primary spleen DCs were used to evaluate GBS capacity to modulate the functions of these important antigen-presenting cells. The role of capsular polysaccharide (CPS), one of the… CONTINUE READING
