Immunity on Dendritic Cells Potentiates Th17-Mediated Stimulation of Dopamine Receptor D5 Expressed

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Dendritic cells (DCs) are responsible for priming T cells and for promoting their differentiation from naive T cells into appropriate effector cells. Emerging evidence suggests that neurotransmitters can modulate T cell-mediated immunity. However, the involvement of specific neurotransmitters or receptors remains poorly understood. In this study, we analyzed the role of dopamine in the regulation of DC […]

Host immunity during Respiratory Syncytial Virus pathogenesis

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Infection by respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of childhood hospitalization as well as a major health and economic burden worldwide. Unfortunately, RSV infection provides only limited immune protection to reinfection, mostly due to inadequate immunological memory, which leads to an exacerbated inflammatory response in the respiratory tract promoting airway damage during […]

Role of dopamine in the physiology of T-cells and dendritic cells

KEYWORDS:

Dendritic cells (DCs) are responsible for priming T-cells and for promoting their differentiation from naïve T-cells into appropriate effector cells. Because of their fundamental roles in controlling immunity, DCs and T-cells require tight regulatory mechanisms. Several studies have shown that dopamine, not only mediate interactions into the nervous system, but can also contribute to the […]
