Abstract

Kidney dendritic cells (DCs) regulate nephritogenic T cell responses. Most kidney DCs belong to the CD11b(+) subset and promote crescentic GN (cGN). The function of the CD103(+) subset, which represents <5% of kidney DCs, is poorly understood. We studied the role of CD103(+) DCs in cGN using several lines of genetically modified mice that allowed us to reduce the number of these cells. In all ...
