The polarization of the immune response toward a Th2 or a Th1 profile can be mediated by dendritic cells (DCs) following antigen presentation and interaction with T cells. Costimulatory molecules such as CD80 and CD86 expressed by DCs, the polarizing cytokine environment during DC--T-cell interaction, and also the nature of the antigen are critical in the orientation of the immune response. In this study, the effect of the cysteine protease Der p 1, one of the major allergens of the house dust…

Differential T-Helper Cell Polarization after Allergen-Specific Stimulation of Autologous Dendritic Cells in Polysensitized Allergic Patients

Allergen-specific stimulation of MoDCs induces T-cell proliferation and upregulation of Th2-type cytokines in atopic individuals, and this Th2 polarization was only observed in cells stimulated with the allergen to which the patients were sensitized.

Differential expression of Th2 chemokine receptors on T cells from atopic and nonatopic asthmatics in response to Der p 1-pulsed dendritic cells.

The role of DCs in differential regulation of CCR3 and CCR4 on CD4+ T cells from HDM-sensitive and non-atopic asthmatics after Der p 1 exposure is supported.

Fungal Proteases Induce Th2 Polarization through Limited Dendritic Cell Maturation and Reduced Production of IL-12

It is found that human DCs derived from CD14+ monocytes from healthy donors underwent partial maturation when incubated with Aspergillus proteases, providing a mechanism for explaining how proteolytically active allergens could preferentially induce Th2 responses through limited maturation of DCs with reduced production of IL-12.

Involvement of the mannose receptor in the uptake of Der p 1, a major mite allergen, by human dendritic cells.

The results suggest that the MR could play a key role in the Der p 1 allergen uptake by DCs and in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases in dust mite -sensitive patients.

Monocyte-Derived Dendritic Cells Induce a House Dust Mite-Specific Th2 Allergic Inflammation in the Lung of Humanized SCID Mice: Involvement of CCR7

Data in human PBMC-reconstituted SCID mice show that monocyte-derived DCs might play a key role in the pathogenesis of the pulmonary allergic response by inducing Th2 effector function following migration to the MLN.

IDO Cell Polarization through Modulation of Cells and Determines Allergen-Induced T of Diverse Native Allergens by Dendritic The Mannose Receptor Mediates the Uptake

It is shown that silencing MR expression on monocyte-derived DCs reverses the Th2 cell polarization bias, driven by Der p 1 allergen exposure, through upregulation of IDO activity and demonstrates a major role for MR in glycoallergen recognition and in the development of Th2 responses.

The role of CCL22/macrophage-derived chemokine in allergic rhinitis.


Myeloid dendritic cells induce Th2 responses to inhaled antigen, leading to eosinophilic airway inflammation.

It is demonstrated that DCs in the airways induce sensitization to inhaled antigen and that molecules expressed on the surface of these cells are critical for the development of Th2-dependent airway eosinophilia.

Suppression of Endogenous IL-10 Gene Expression in Dendritic Cells Enhances Antigen Presentation for Specific Th1 Induction: Potential for Cellular Vaccine Development1

The results revealed that the high resistance of genetically engineered IL-10−/− (IL-10KO) mice to genital chlamydial infection is a function of the predilection of their APCs to rapidly and preferentially activate a high Th1 response.

In Vivo Microbial Stimulation Induces Rapid CD40 Ligand–independent Production of Interleukin 12 by Dendritic Cells and their Redistribution to T Cell Areas

The capacity of splenic DC but not MΦ to synthesize de novo high levels of IL-12 within hours of exposure to microbial products in vivo, as well as the ability of the same stimuli to induce migration of DC to the T cell areas, argues that DC function simultaneously as both antigen-presenting cells and IL- 12 producing accessory cells in the initiation of cell-mediated immunity to intracellular pathogens.

Kinetics of dendritic cell activation: impact on priming of TH1, TH2 and nonpolarized T cells

It is shown that after activation by lipopolysaccharide, dendritic cells produced IL-12 only transiently and became refractory to further stimulation, suggesting another mechanism for the regulation of effector and memory T cells.

Dendritic cells produce IL-12 and direct the development of Th1 cells from naive CD4+ T cells.

In addition to inducing proliferation and clonal expansion of naive T cells, dendritic cells, by their production of IL-12, play a direct role in the development of IFN-gamma-producing cells that are important for cell-mediated immune responses.

Dendritic cells differently respond to haptens and irritants by their production of cytokines and expression of co‐stimulatory molecules

Data suggest that dendritic cells respond to some haptens by changing their expression of several co‐stimulatory molecules and their production of cytokines with a resultant change in antigen‐presenting function, and suggest that these chemicals stimulate DC by different mechanisms.

Activation of human dendritic cells following infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Data indicate that infection with M. tuberculosis results in the direct activation and maturation of DC, which may facilitate migration to the lymph nodes, and enhance presentation of Ag to T cells, thereby facilitating the induction of the immune response against this pathogen.

Effect of interleukin‐10 on dendritic cell maturation and function

The data show that DC that have undergone maturation in vitro in the presence of IL‐10, have an impaired capacity to induce a Th1‐type response in vivo, leading to the development of Th2 lymphocytes, and suggest thatIL‐10 skews the Th1/Th2 balance to Th2 in vivo by selectively blocking IL‐12 synthesis by the antigen‐presenting cells that play a role of adjuvant of the primary immune response.

IL-12-deficient dendritic cells, generated in the presence of prostaglandin E2, promote type 2 cytokine production in maturing human naive T helper cells.

It is suggested that elevated levels of PGE2 promote type 2 Th responses by stably impairing the ability of maturing DC to produce IL-12, and may be considered for use in immunotherapy.
