Resumo

T follicular helper (T-fh) cells have emerged as a critical limiting factor for controlling the magnitude of neonatal germinal center (GC) reactions and primary vaccine antibody responses. We compared the functional attributes of neonatal and adult T-fh cells at the transcriptomic level and demonstrated that the T-fh cell program is well-initiated in neonates although the T-f(h) gene-expression pattern (i.e., CXCR5, IL-21, BCL6, TBK1, STAT4, ASCL2, and c-MAF) is largely underrepresented as compared to adult T-fh cells. Importantly, we identified a TH2-bias of neonatal T-fh cells, with preferential differentiation toward short-lived pre-T-fh effector cells. Remarkably, adjuvantation with CpG-ODNs redirect neonatal pre-T-fh cells toward committed GC-T-fh cells, as illustrated by increased expression of T-fh signature genes and reduced expression of TH2-related genes.
