A Liver Capsular Network of Monocyte-Derived Macrophages Restricts Hepatic Dissemination of Intraperitoneal Bacteria by Neutrophil Recruitment

ABSTRACT: Confusion arising from the attribution of divergent functions to similar cell types from the mononuclear phagocyte system is mainly due to difficulties in identifying or distinguishing different dendritic cells (DC), macrophages or monocyte subsets and/or their activation states. Using an extensive panel of surface markers and comparing in situ labelling, ex vivo flow cytometry and mass cytometry labelling together with transcriptomic analysis of sorted cells, we report the presence of a population of steady-state liver-resident macrophages populating the subcapsular space of the liver. This cell population, previously believed to be DCs, appears around weaning and is continuously replenished from adult blood-borne progenitors. Transcriptional analysis indicates that these capsule macrophages are phenotypically related to intestinal or dermis macrophages. They sensed peritoneal bacteria, promoted neutrophil recruitment to the capsule, and their specific ablation resulted in decreased neutrophil recruitment and increased intrahepatic bacterial burden. Gene expression of 2 hepatic cell subsets from 3 replicates per subset and of epidermal Langerhans cells was analyzed by microarray from purified mRNA obtained from FACS sorted CD207-GFP mice. Gene data sets were compared to those of plasmacytoid DCs (DCs), monocytes, LCs, various DCs, macrophages from the Immgen Consortium (GSE15907), dermal macrophages (GSE49358) and steady state KCs (GSE55606).
