Brief description Genes up-regulated in ex vivo follicular dendritic cells: peripheral lymph node versus Peyers patch.
Full description or abstract Germinal centers (GCs) are clusters of activated B cells built on stromal cells known as follicular dendritic cells (FDCs). In the Peyer?s patches (PPs), GCs are chronically induced by bacteria and are the major sites for generation of gut IgA immune responses. Whether FDCs directly contribute to the IgA production in PP GCs is unknown. To investigate the role FDCs in gut immune system, we examined comprehensive gene profiles of FDCs purified from PPs or perypheral lymph nodes (pLNs) with or without immunization. We also tried to reconstitute the PP FDC signature in vitro by pulsed or continuous stimulation of pLN FDCs through TLRs, RARs or simultaneously through TLRs and RARs.
