Abstract: Dendritic cells (DC) are professional antigen-presenting cells that have a role in the initiation of adaptive immune responses and tolerance. Among the tolerogenic mechanisms, the expression of the enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO1) represents an effective tool to generate T regulatory cells (Treg). In humans, different DC subsets express IDO1, but less is known about the IDO1-related enzyme, IDO2. Here, we found a different pattern of expression and regulation between IDO1 and IDO2 in human circulatin…
