The quality of signals received by dendritic cells (DC) in response to pathogens influences the nature of the adaptive response. We show that pathogen-derived signals to DC mediated via TLRs can be modulated by activated invariant NKT (iNKT) cells. DC maturation induced in vivo with any one of a variety of TLR ligands was greatly improved through simultaneous administration of the iNKT cell ligand alpha-galactosylceramide. DC isolated from animals treated simultaneously with TLR and iNKT cell...Expand abstract
