Ntrol DCs were used as stimulators in IFN- l-free MedChemExpress (-)-Indolactam V co-culture conditions (Fig. 2F). Collectively, these data suggested that treatment with IFN- l is inhibitory for DC function via IFN- lR on DCs.ization of IL-10 had only minimal effects. We further identified increased levels of PD-L1 (Fig. 3D,F left) and PD-1 (Fig. 3E,F right) RNA (Fig. 3D,E) and protein (Fig. 3F) in MLRs with IFN-ltreated DCs. These data suggested that IFN- l-treated DCs created a regulatory environment that impairs T cell activation.IFN- 1676428 l-treated DCs Promote Proliferation of Regulatory T CellsAn environment with GW 0742 decreased IL-12 levels and increased expression of negative co-stimulatory molecules, such as PD-1/ PD-L1 system, often leads to skewed composition of proliferating T cells. We found preferential proliferation of CD4+CD25+ cells in IFN- l-DC/T cells, indicated by higher frequency of CFSElow cells, compared to control DC/T cells co-cultures (Fig. 4A). The proliferation of CD4+CD252 exposed to IFN- l DCs was reduced, suggested by lower frequency of CFSElow cells compared to control DCs in a MLR (Fig. 4B). We further identified increased expression of FoxP3 RNA levels (Fig. 4C) and higher frequency of FoxP3+ Tregs (Fig. 4D) in IFN- l-DC/T cells compared to control DC/T cells co-cultures. These data suggested that IFN- l-DCs favor proliferation of FoxP3+ T cells. Tregs are very efficient 25837696 in suppressing effector T cells. When present in comparable numbers, IFN- l-DC-expanded Tregs have a comparable inhibitory capacity to Tregs previously exposed to control DCs (Fig. 4E). Further, IFN- l-DC-expanded Tregs produce IL-10 and express CD45RA but not in excessive amounts compared to control cells (Fig. S3). These data suggested that the inhibitory effects of IFN- l-DCs are likely due to their capacity to increase the numbers of Tregs via DC-dependent proliferation; their ability to induce Tregs with more powerful regulatory functions is unlikely.IFN-l-exposed DCs Exhibit PD-1/PD-L1-dependent Regulatory CapacityThe stimulatory capacity of DCs is highly dependent on their cytokine and surface molecule profiles. HCV DCs triggered lower levels of IL-2 (Fig. 3A) and IL-12 (Fig. 3B) compared to control and SVR DCs in MLR. IL-2 (Fig. 3A) and IL-12 (Fig. 3B) levels were also decreased during MLRs with IFN- l-exposed DCs when DCs originated from controls or SVR. Exposures of HCV DCs to IFN- l lead to further inhibition of IL-12 but not IL-2 production (Fig. 3A B). Neutralization of inhibitory factors (PD-1), or supplementation with stimulatory factors (IL-12 or IL-2), restored the stimulatory capacity of IFN-l treated DC (Fig. 3C); neutralTable 2. Phenotypic analyses of DCs generated in the presence or absence of IFN-l.IFN- l-DCs Promote Expansion of Pre-existing but not de novo Generation of TregsFinally, we addressed the origin of proliferating Tregs upon coculture with IFN- l-DCs. The frequency of FoxP3+ regulatory T cells (Fig. 4F) was increased upon T cell co-culture with IFN- lDCs when T cell population contained both CD4+CD25+ and CD4+CD252 T cells. In contrast, no additional FoxP3-bearing cells were generated upon co-culture of IFN- l-DCs with CD4+CD252 lymphocytes (Fig. 4F).
