|Abstract:||CD40 ligand (CD40L) is a membrane-bound molecule expressed by activated T cells. CD40L potently induces dendritic cell (DC) maturation and IL-12p70 secretion and plays a critical role during T cell priming in the lymph nodes. IFN-gamma and IL-4 are required for CD40L-mediated cytokine secretion, suggesting that T cells are required for optimal CD40L activity. Because CD40L is rapidly up-regulated by non-T cells during inflammation, CD40 stimulation may also be important at the primary infection site. However, a role for T cells at the earliest stages of infection is unclear. The present study demonstrates that the innate immune cell-derived cytokine, IL-1beta, can increase CD40L-induced cytokine secretion by monocyte-derived DC, CD34(+)-derived DC, and peripheral blood DC independently of T cell-derived cytokines. Furthermore, IL-1beta is constitutively produced by monocyte-derived DC and monocytes, and is increased in response to intact Escherichia coli or CD40L, whereas neither CD34(+)-derived DC nor peripheral blood DC produce IL-1beta. Finally, DC activated with CD40L and IL-1beta induce higher levels of IFN-gamma secretion by T cells compared with DC activated with CD40L alone. Therefore, IL-1beta is the first non-T cell-derived cytokine identified that enhances CD40L-mediated activation of DC. The synergy between CD40L and IL-1beta highlights a potent, T cell-independent mechanism for DC activation during the earliest stages of inflammatory responses.|
