Title in Portuguese
Avaliação funcional de células T reguladoras geradas in vitro na modulação da resposta imune.

Tolerância imunológica
Abstract in Portuguese
As células dendríticas (DCs) são as principais células apresentadoras de antígeno do sistema imune, e há evidências da participação na tolerância imunológica. Neste estudo avaliamos as alterações ocorridas na população de células CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ após co-cultura de células de linfonodo com BMDCs, na presença de timócitos alogênicos ou singênicos em apoptose. Após cultura na presença de células alogênicas a população de Tregs mostra-se aumentada, e essa expansão é dependente de contato entre a DC e o linfócito T, já que o isolamento das culturas diminuiu a expressão destes marcadores. A internalização de células em apoptose foi induziu caráter tolerogênico nas DCs com baixa expressão de moléculas co-estimuladoras e resistência à maturação por LPS. As células CD4+CD25+ geradas in vitro foram capazes de conter a proliferação de esplenócitos de camundongos BALB/c estimulados por esplenócitos de C57BL/6 irradiados, anti-CD3 e OVA. No ensaio in vivo, as Tregs geradas in vitro também foram capazes de suprimir a proliferação de células CD25- quando transferidas para animais Nude, impedindo também o infiltrado inflamatório no estômago, cólon, fígado e rins, sendo assim capazes de suprimir a resposta imune in vitro e in vivo.

Abstract in English
The dendritic cell (DC) plays a very important role in antigen presentation in the immune system and recent articles have shown the involvement in maintaining peripheral tolerance. Here we evaluated the changes in the CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ after co culture of DCs with lymph node cells. BMDCs were pulsed with apoptotic cells and co-cultured with lymph-node cells. Our results show an increase of CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ T cells after co-culture with DCs pulsed with apoptotic cells. Furthermore, the DCs did not change the pattern of co-stimulatory molecules expression due to phagocytosis of syngeneic or allogeneic apoptotic cells and further stimulation with LPS. The CD4+CD25+ cells sorted from the in vitro culture were able to suppress the proliferation of splenocytes in vitro in a specific and non-specific manner. As expected, the co-transfer of CD4+CD25- and CD4+CD25+, both sorted from the in vitro culture, was able to control the cell infiltrates in the target organs and the total cell count in the lymph-nodes. Thus, the Tregs expanded in vitro are able to suppress the immune response in vitro and in vivo assays.
