Abstract: CD8α+ DC are implicated as the principle DC subset for cross-presentation and cross-priming of cytotoxic CD8 T cell responses. In this study, we demonstrate another unique facet of the CD8α + DC and CD8 T cell relationship, by showing that CD8 T cells reciprocally activate CD8α+ DC, but not CD8α- DC, for IL-12p70 production, the key Th1-promoting cytokine. This effect was observed during an antigen-specific interaction between DC and activated CD8 T cells, along with secondary TLR stimulation of DC by LPS. Activated CD8 T cells use a combination of IFN-γ and CD40L, which is rapidly up-regulated post-stimulation, to prime DC for IL-12p70 production during an antigen-specific response. Our results suggest that the interaction between CD8α+ DC and antigen-primed CD8 T cells may form an important component of Th1-mediated immunity through the induction of IL-12p70. © 2008 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
