Recent compelling evidence indicates that Th17 confer host immunity against a variety of microbes, including extracellular and intracellular pathogens. Therefore, understanding mechanisms for the induction and activation of antigen-specific Th17 is important for the rational design of vaccines against pathogens. To study this, we employed an in vitro system in which influenza HA1 was delivered to dendritic cells (DCs) via Dectin-1 using anti-hDectin-1-HA1 recombinant fusion proteins. We found that healthy ind…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
