Immune complex-induced enhancement of bacterial antigen presentation requires FcУ Receptor III expression on dendritic cells

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Dendritic cells (DCs) are capable of initiating adaptive immune responses against infectious agents by presenting pathogen- derived antigens on MHC molecules to naïve T cells. Because of their key role in priming adaptive immunity, it is expected that interfering with DC function would be advantageous to the pathogen. We have previously shown that Salmonella […]

Role of glutamate on T-cell mediated immunity

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: The pivotal role that glutamate plays in the functioning of the central nervous system is well established. Several glutamate receptors and glutamate transporters have been extensively described in the central nervous system where they, respectively mediate glutamate effects and regulates extracellular glutamate levels. Recent studies have shown that glutamate not only has a role […]
