Regulation of B cell responses by tissue resident macrophages in the spleen May 08, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM Frank and Katherine May Lecture Theatre, Henry Wellcome Building,
The spleen is unique from other lymphoid organs in its ability to filter blood. Its large size and highly vascularized nature makes it a central hub for lymphocyte trafficking, cell-cell interactions and information exchange. Dysfunctional spleen is associated with increased incidents of sepsis due to uncontrolled bacterial infections, failure of peripheral tolerance and enhanced proliferation of myeloid cells with pathological potential. However, despite its importance, the ways by which B cell responses are regulated in the spleen are not fully understood. Most of the blood that enters the spleen first reaches the marginal zone (MZ); a narrow compartment that surrounds the follicles and separates it from the open blood circulation in the red pulp. As such, the MZ represents an important interface for lymphocyte trafficking and antigen capture. Within this region, at least two subsets of resident macrophages have been identified; the marginal-zone macrophages and the metallophilic macrophages. While both subsets are important for induction of humoral immunity and tolerance, the roles selected subsets play in these processes and the mechanisms involved are poorly understood. To better address these questions, we developed a new mouse model to selectively target MZ macrophages, demonstrating a specific and non-redundant role for these cells in regulation of germinal center responses
