Resumo

Objectives: To investigate the involvement of NLRP3 in the effector functions of human dendritic cells (DCs) in response to Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast cells (Pb) and to evaluate its role in the modulation of the adaptive immune response. Methods: DCs were differentiated from purified peripheral blood monocytes and analyzed in relation to the participation of TLR-2,dectin-1, and Syk in Pb recognition, as well as, the indirect mechanisms (Reactive Oxygen Species production, endosome acidification, or K+ efflux) involved in NLRP3 inflammasome activation after the stimulus with Pb. Additionally, we analyzed the role of NLRP3 in the activation of T cells. Results: Our results demonstrated that the NLRP3 inflammasome activation and cytokines production by DCs are dependent on ROS generation, endosome acidification, and K+ efflux and involve the Pb recognition by dectin-1 and Syk phosphorylation. Our data also demonstrate that the NLRP3 inflammasome is essential for the activation/expansion of Th1/Th17 cells and its inhibition leads to an increased frequency of Th2 and Treg cells. Conclusion: Altogether our data indicated that activation of NLRP3 presents an important role in both the induction of the initial inflammatory response and in the development of the acquired immune response associated with resistance to infection.
