Abstract

Local immunosuppression within the liver and sex steroid changes, in both blood and tissue during liver regeneration, are well-recognized events. Dendritic cells (DC) play pivotal roles in the induction and regulation of immune responses. Their numbers are expanded markedly in vivo by fins-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3L) administration, without modification of their maturation state. Recent evidence suggests that estrogen can modulate DC function and promote a Th2-type immune response. Few data are available concerning the role of DC in liver regeneration. After 75% partial hepatectomy (PH) in male C57BL/6 mice, CD11c+ liver (L)DC increased significantly within 6 hours and maintained an immature phenotype. Numbers returned to pre-hepatectomy levels by 24 hours. The expanded LDC population showed increased IL-10 and reduced IFN-γ gene transcription. Using these DC compared with control LDC as T cell stimulators in 72-hour mixed leukocyte cultures, IL-10 production was enhanced and IFN-γ production reduced. LDC isolated 6 hours after 75% PH exhibited enhanced estrogen receptor (ER) expression, concomitant with increased serum estrogen levels. By contrast, spleen (S)DC isolated before and after PH showed no significant changes in their function (maturation state, T cell stimulatory activity, cytokine production, and ER expression). Increased liver regeneration (more than 50%) was observed 48 hours after 40% PH in the Flt3L-pretreated compared with the PBS group. In conclusion, interstitial LDC may play a key role in local immune regulation during liver regeneration, possibly linking estrogen-mediated immune modulation and hepatocyte proliferation.
