CD46 activation induces distinct CXCL-10 response in monocytes and monocyte-derived dendritic cells

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

CD46 is an important immune regulatory receptor with dual functions, however, the CD46 isoform distribution and the effect of CD46 activation on the cytokine production in monocytes and monocyte-derived dendritic cells (moDCs) is unclear. Here, we show that CD46 activation of moDCs downregulates LPS-induced CXCL-10 expression, while the expression of CXCL-10 in monocytes is unaffected. Furthermore, the differentiation of moDCs induces a switch towards dominance of CYT-2 isoforms of CD46. These data indicate that CD46 activation exerts different functions in monocytes and moDCs and this correlates with a switch in CD46 isoform expression upon differentiation of moDCs.
