Identification of specific markers: CD16, CD1c and BDCA-3 in mDCs and pDCs

signalling dataset

Data was obtained on the properties of the CD16, CD1c and BDCA-3 DC populations and their production of cytokines in response to different Toll-like receptor (TLR).

We studied two major blood populations of DCs, myeloid DCs (mDCs) and plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs). Among mDCs, three populations could be further identified by specific markers: CD16, CD1c and BDCA-3. The properties of these DC populations and their production of cytokines in response to different Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists were evaluated. The TLR agonists used were: PAM3CSK4, Poly I:C, LPS, Flagellin, Imiquimod, Resiquimod, CpG 2216, CpG 2006. While BDCA-3+ cells seem not have any capability to respond to TLR agonists, CD16 and CD1c produce a number of cytokines in response to these stimuli, with the exception of CpGs. In addition, we have found that CD16+ DCs are the major producers of TNF-alpha and IL-6, while CD1c+ DCs produce primarily IL-8.
