Gene expression profiling of mouse splenic Dendritic cells subsets

ABSTRACT: We describe a novel subset of CD8+ DCs in lymphoid organs of naïve mice characterized by expression of the CX3CR1 chemokine receptor. CX3CR1+CD8+ DCs lack hallmarks of classical CD8+ DCs, including IL12 secretion, the capacity to cross-present antigen and their developmental independence of the transcriptional factor BatF3. Gene expression profiling showed that CX3CR1+CD8+ DCs resemble CD8- cDCs. The microarray analysis further revealed a unique plasmacytoid DC (PDC) gene signature of CX3CR1+ CD8+ DCs. A PDC relationship of the cells is further supported by the fact that they harbor characteristic D-J immunoglobulin gene rearrangements and that development of CX3CR1+CD8+ DCs requires E2-2, the critical transcriptional regulator of PDCs. Thus, CX3CR1+ CD8+ DCs represent a unique DC subset, related to but distinct from PDCs. After collagenase D digestion, spleens from Cx3cr1gfp/+ C57BL/6 mice were enriched for CD11c+ cells by magnetic separation according to the manufacturer’s protocol (MiltenyiBiotec GmbH). Splenic CD11chi cells were isolated using the FACS ARIA high-speed sorter (Becton-Dickinson). Total RNA was extracted and subjected to gene expression profiling using the Mouse Genome 430.2 Affymetrix GeneChip

Lymphoid organs are characterized by a complex network of phenotypically distinct dendritic cells (DC) with potentially unique roles in pathogen recognition and immunostimulation. Classical DC (cDC) include two major subsets distinguished in the mouse by the expression of CD8alpha. Here we describe a subset of CD8alpha(+) DC in lymphoid organs of naïve mice characterized by expression of the CX(3)CR1 chemokine receptor. CX(3)CR1(+) CD8alpha(+) DC lack hallmarks of classical CD8alpha(+) DC, inclu  ...[more]
