Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) is a primary immune deficiency characterized by low levels of serum immune globulins, lack of Ab, and reduced numbers of CD27+ memory B cells. Although T, B, and dendritic cell defects have been described, for the great majority, genetic causes have not been identified. In these experiments, we investigated B cell and plasmacytoid dendritic cell activation induced via TLR9, an intracellular recognition receptor that detects DNA-containing CpG motifs from… CONTINUE READING
