Abstract

The expression of MHC class II (MHC-II) on the surface of antigen-presenting cells, such as dendritic cells (DCs), is tightly regulated during cellular activation. Many cells, including DCs, are activated following stimulation of innate Toll-like receptors (TLRs) by products of microorganisms. In the resting (immature) state, MHC-II is ubiquitinated in immature DCs and is rapidly degraded; however, after activation of these cells with MyD88-dependent TLR ligands, MHC-II ubiquitination is blocked, and MHC-II survival is prolonged. We now show that DC activation using MyD88-dependent TLR ligands, MyD88-independent TLR ligands, and even infection with the intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii leads to identical changes in MHC-II expression, ubiquitination, and surface stability, revealing a conserved role for enhanced MHC-II stability after DC activation by different stimuli.
