Systematic name M9406
Brief description Genes up-regulated in CD8A [GeneID=925] dendritic cells versus NK cells.
Full description or abstract The injection of the pathogen-associated molecular pattern Polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid (poly(I:C)) leads to the activation of various immune cells, including dendritic cells (DCs) and Natural Killer (NK) cells. This activation is due to different innate cytokines produced early after injection, in particular IFN-I. The objective of the study was to compare the pattern of expression of IFN-I stimulated genes between DC and NK cells. The project focused on a specific subset of conventional DC, CD8a DC, which responsiveness to IFN-I determines the capacity to activate CD8 T cells by cross-presentation of exogenous antigens. To identify the responses to IFN-I selectively induced in CD8a+ DC, we compared their gene expression profile to that of NK cells, using gene chips, before and after poly(I:C) stimulation.
