B cell roles in Neuroimmunological diseases


Outline

  • Antibody-independent roles of B cells

    • antigen presentation (APC)

    • innate immunity (environment/immune interface)

    • immune regulation

    • lymphoneogeneis


B cells as antigen-presenting cells (APC):

T cell expansion and differentiation in vivo requires antigen presentation by B cells. Crawford et al. J Immunol 2006

Antigen-presenting B cells: role in induction of peripheral T cell tolerance Raimondi et al. J Immunol 2006.


The Journal of Immunology, 2006, 176: 3498–3506.


Background

Though B cells are well documented as APC, their role in supporting and programming the T cell response in vivo is still unclear

Studies using B cell-deficient (mMT) mice have given rise to contradictory results.


Methods

Mixed BM chimeric mice to define the contribution that B cells make as APC.

Can generate TCR-Tg mice where B cell compartment is deficient in MHC class II, while other APC are largely normal.

Other mice: CD40 deficient, LT deficient.


  • Observations

  • T cell clonal expansion is significantly reduced

  • Differentiation of T cells into cytokine-secreting effector cells is impaired (in particular, Th2 cells)

  • (iii) Development of the memory T cell populations is also decreased.

  • Furthermore: Although MHC class II-mediated presentation by B cells was crucial for an optimal T cell response, neither a B cell-specific lack of CD40 (influencing costimulation) nor lymphotoxin (influencing lymphoid tissue architecture) had any effect on the T cell response.



Good reconstitution in mixed BM chimera (non-B cells mostly wild-type, all B cells MHC class II deficient)


MHC class II on B cells in chimeric versus Wild type wild-type, all B cells MHC class II deficient)


Preserved architecture in LN of chimerics and wild type wild-type, all B cells MHC class II deficient) (T cell: Green; B cell: red)

Similarly, T cell expansion in the chimerics cell chimerics – assessed by T cell tetramer

Conclusions cell chimerics – assessed by T cell tetramer

In vivo, B cells provide extra and essential Ag presentation capacity over and above that provided by dendritic cells

In this context, B cells optimize expansion and allow the generation of memory and effector T cells

B cells and Toll-like receptors (TLRs): cell chimerics – assessed by T cell tetramer

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) make it possible for B cells to ‘sense’

the environment (viruses, bacteria) and respond to external stimuli

TLR signaling is important for normal B cell activation

Ruprecht, Lanzavecchia, 2006; Medzhitov. Nature. Pasare, 2006.

TLR signaling may cause B cells to become abnormally activated,

and may lead to production of auto-antibodies Lau et al. J Exp Med. 2005;

Martin, Elkon. J Exp Med, 2005; Fields et al. J Immunol 2006

B Cells as Active Immune Regulators via cell chimerics – assessed by T cell tetramer

Effector Cytokines - role in immune regulation

  • Memory B cells, stimulated by their Ag (BCR) and subsequent T cell help (CD40), secrete TNF and LT, thereby actively contributing to efficiency of adaptive memory immune responses

  • Naive B cells (normally harboring autoreactive repertoire), stimulated in “bystander” context (CD40 only), secrete IL-10 that could acquiesce otherwise undesired response
