The synthetic immunomodulator cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4-Ig (CTLA-4-Ig) initiates effects in human monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC) that rely on immunosuppressive tryptophan catabolism. However, it is unable to induce suppressive properties in DC matured by CD40 engagement. Thus, CD40-driven events may physiologically set human DC free from restraint by regulatory cells expressing surface CTLA-4.

CD40 ligation prevents onset of tolerogenic properties in human dendritic cells treated with CTLA-4-Ig.

Abstract

The synthetic immunomodulator cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4-Ig (CTLA-4-Ig) initiates effects in human monocyte-derived dendritic cells (DC) that rely on immunosuppressive tryptophan catabolism. However, it is unable to induce suppressive properties in DC matured by CD40 engagement. Thus, CD40-driven events may physiologically set human DC free from restraint by regulatory cells expressing surface CTLA-4.
