The capacity of airway eosinophils, potentially pertinent to allergic diseases of the upper and lower airways, to function as professional APCs, those specifically able to elicit responses from unprimed, Ag-naive CD4+ T cells has been uncertain. We investigated whether airway eosinophils are capable of initiating naive T cell responses in vivo. Eosinophils, isolated free of other APCs from the spleens of IL-5 transgenic mice, following culture with GM-CSF expressed MHC class II and the...[Show more]
