Genetically Modified Lactococcus lactis for Delivery of Human Interleukin-10 to Dendritic Cells

Figure 3

(a) Immature DCs were not matured, matured with MF or with 1 × 105 cfu of viable L. lactis, L. lactisIL -10 , L. lactisIL -10/α-IL-10, or L. lactisIL -10 /rat IgG1 in the presence of MF. Mature DCs were harvested after 48 hours, washed, and restimulated (2 × 104 cells in 200 μL) for 48 hours with CD40L transfected irradiated hybridoma cells to assess IL-10 production or in combination with IFN-γ to asses IL-12p70 production. Mean values with standard error of mean are given; * indicates and **indicates using heteroscedastic Student t-test. (b) Immature DCs were not matured, matured with MF or with 1 × 105 CFU of viable L. lactis, L. lactisIL -10, L. lactisIL -10 /α-IL-10 or L. lactisIL -10 /rat IgG1 in the presence of MF. Mature DCs were subsequently cultured with naïve Th-cells for 5 days, these DC derived Th-cells were washed and restimulated with CD3/CD28 (100.000 cell/200 μL, final concentration 1 : 1000) to assess IL-10 and IFN- production. Mean values with standard error of mean are given; **indicates using heteroscedastic Student t-test.
