In fact, Ab responses against immunogenic Ag were effectively generated even in the absence of DC-activating adjuvants. Here we tested if targeting weakly immunogenic putative subunit vaccine Ags to Clec9A could enhance Ab responses to a level likely to be protective. The proposed "universal" influenza Ag, M2e and the enterovirus 71 Ag, SP70 were linked to anti-Clec9A Abs and injected into mice. Targeting these Ags to Clec9A greatly increased Ab titres. For optimal responses, a DC-activating adjuvant was required. For optimal responses, a boost injection was also needed, but the high Ab titres against the targeting construct blocked Clec9A-targeted boosting. Heterologous prime-boost strategies avoiding cross-reactivity between the priming and boosting targeting constructs overcame this limitation. In addition, targeting small amounts of Ag to Clec9A served as an efficient priming for a conventional boost with higher levels of untargeted Ag. Using this Clec9A-targeted priming, conventional boosting strategy, M2e immunisation protected mice from infection with lethal doses of influenza H1N1 virus. © 2017 The Author(s).||Source Title:||npj Vaccines||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/175083||ISSN:||20590105||DOI:||10.1038/s41541-017-0033-5|
