Experiment Name: Double Labeling
Experiment Background: Lhymocytes maturing in the thymus undergo clonal deletion/apoptosis when they encounter self- or allo-Ags presented by dendritic cells (DCs). How this occurs is a matter of debate, but NO may play a role given its ability of inducing apoptosis of these cells. Analysis by FACS and by double labeling of cytocentrifuged preparations showed that DCs and MF both express iNOS within APC. Analysis of a purified preparation of DCs confirmed that these cells express high levels of iNOS and produce large amounts of NO in basal conditions. The capacity of DCs to generate NO was enhanced by exposure to rat albumin, a self-protein, and required a fully expressed process of Ag internalization, processing, and presentation. Peptides derived from portions of class II MHC molecules up-regulate iNOS expression and NO production by DCs as well, both in self and allogeneic combinations, suggesting a role of NO in both self and acquired tolerance. et al. also found that NO induced apoptosis of rat double-positive thymocytes, the effect being more evident in anti-CD3-stimulated cells. Altogether, the present findings might suggest that DC-derived NO is at least one of the soluble factors regulating events, in the thymus, that follow recognition of self- and allo-Ags.
Experimental Steps: Thymi (10–20 for each experiment) were cut into small fragments and digested with collagenase and a total thymocyte suspension was obtained.After that the suspension was cultured. The adherent cells comprised two populations: some cells showed the characteristics of DCs and other cells were circumferentially spread, ruffled cells with many vesicles. The adherent cells were cultured. After the overnight culture, the floating cells were collected. Cells that detached after the overnight culture consisted of a large cell population that was MHC I+, MHC II++, CD4-, CD8-/+, CD45RA-, CD3-, and OX62+, consistent with the expected profile of DCs..However, a considerable number were ED2+ and ED3+, suggesting that some cells also detached during the overnight culture. Thus, we called these cells thymic APC.In selected experiments, MΦwere collected, by treating the petri dishes with EDTA 30 mM, and analyzed by FACSThymic APC were centrifuged on 55% Percoll (Pharmacia LKB, Uppsala, Sweden) solution for 20 min at 4C, and the low-density fraction was collected and subjected to two rounds of plastic adherence for 30 min at 37C. The final enrichment for DCs was routinely performed by removing T cells and MΦ using magnetic beads. “Briefly, cells were incubated with a mixture of appropriate dilutions of R73, V65, OX12, OX22, OX33, 341.1, ED2, and ED3 mAbs for 30 min at 4C, washed three times, and then incubated with rat anti-mouse IgG-coated magnetic beads for 30 min at 4C in agitation. “
