Example text

Saposins were shown to mediate loading of exogenous lipids onto human CD1b and CD1d, as well as murine CD1d molecules (Fig. 5 The role of saposins in lipid antigen loading. Lipid antigens typically localize in cellular membranes. In order to load into CD1, the lipid must be removed from a highly hydrophobic membrane and be transferred into the membrane distal antigen-binding domain of the CD1 HC. This process can be facilitated by sphingolipid activator proteins (SAPs or saposins). Saposins may operate either by partially disrupting lipid bilayers making membrane-bound lipids more accessible for loading into CD1.

Cohen et al. , 2008). Activation of iNKT cells independent of microbial lipid antigen recognition provides an elegant explanation for iNKT cell activation in response to a vast array of microbes not previously encountered by the host. 2. The CD1d-restricted T cell immune response to infection: Deployment, effector functions and regulation Rapid deployment of CD1d-restricted T cells provides these cells with the opportunity to shape both the ongoing innate responses and the ensuing adaptive ones.

1999). By 24 h postinjection, liver NK cells have undergone extensive proliferation and exhibit maximal cytotoxic activity (Eberl and MacDonald, 2000). , 2001). In the context of certain microbial infections, rapid triggering of NK cell functions can depend on iNKT cell activation. , 2006). , 2003). 4. B cell help Like CD4þ MHC-restricted T cells, activated iNKT cells can provide both non-cognate help and cognate help for B cells presenting lipid antigens in CD1d. v. , 2000). Human iNKT cells have also been reported to rapidly activate autologous naı¨ve or memory B cells, and promote their proliferation in vitro.
