Regulation of antigen-expressing dendritic cells by double negative regulatory T cells.
TCRαβ(+) CD3(+) CD4(-) CD8(-) NK1.1(-) double negative (DN) Tregs comprise 1-3% of peripheral T lymphocytes in mice and humans. It has been demonstrated that DN Tregs can suppress allo-, xeno- and auto-immune responses in an Ag-specific fashion. However, the mechanisms by which DN Tregs regulate immune responses remain elusive. Whether DN Tregs can regulate DCs has not been investigated previously. In this study, we demonstrate that DN Tregs express a high level of CTLA4 and are able to down...Expand abstract
