AB  - Aims: Given that deprivation of noradrenaline acting on lymphocytes through β-adrenoceptor influences antibody response, the effects of propranolol treatment beginning two days before immunization with quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (QIV) on IgG response and underlying cellular molecular mechanism in mice were investigated.

Main methods: Twenty-one days post-immunization the total QIV antigen-specific IgG titer and IgG subclass titers in sera were determined using ELISA. Additionally, the total counts of germinal centre (GC) B cells, T follicular helper (Tfh) and T follicular regulatory (Tfr) cells in draining lymph nodes (dLNs) and spleens, in vitro proliferation of interacting B cells and Th cells and IL-21 synthesis in Th cells in response to QIV antigens and/or mitogen were attested using flow cytometry analysis. In QIV antigen-stimulated dLN cell and splenocyte cultures were also measured concentrations of INF-γ and IL-4, cytokines upregulating IgG2a and IgG1 synthesis, respectively.

Key findings: Propranolol decreased the total QIV antigen-specific IgG titer. This correlated with lower GC B cell count and the shift in Tfr/Tfh cell and Tfr/GC B cell ratio towards Tfr in propranolol-treated mice compared with controls. Consistently, QIV antigen-stimulated proliferation of B cells and Th cells from propranolol-treated mice in vitro was impaired. This correlated with the lower frequency of QIV antigen-specific IL-21-producing cells among Th cells. Additionally, in propranolol-treated mice, in accordance with the changes in INF-γ/IL-4 ratio in dLN cell/splenocyte cultures, serum IgG2a/IgG1 ratio was shifted towards IgG1 reflecting decreased IgG2a response.

Significance: The study indicates that chronic propranolol treatment may impair response to QIV.

AB  - Considering variability in vaccine responsiveness across human populations, in respect to magnitude and quality, and importance of vaccines in the elderly, the influence of recipient genetic background on the kinetics of age-related changes in the serum IgG antibody responses to seasonal trivalent inactivated split-virus influenza bulk (TIV) was studied in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice showing quantitative and qualitative differences in this responses in young adult ages. With ageing the total serum IgG response to influenza viruses declined, in a strain-specific manner, so the strain disparity observed in young adult mice (the greater magnitude of IgG response in BALB/c mice) disappeared in aged mice. However, the sexual dimorphisms in this response (more prominent in females of both strains) remained in aged ones. The strain-specific differences in age-related decline in the magnitude of IgG response to TIV correlated with the number of germinal centre (GC) B splenocytes. The agerelated decline in GC B cell number was consistent with the decrease in the proliferation of B cells and CD4 + cells in splenocyte cultures upon restimulation with TIV. Additionally, the age-related decrease in the magnitude of IgG response correlated with the increase in follicular T regulatory (fTreg)/follicular T helper (fTh) and fTreg/GC B splenocyte ratios (reflecting decrease in fTh and GC B numbers without changes in fTreg number), and the frequency of CD4 + splenocytes producing IL-21, a key factor in balancing the B cell and fTreg cell activity. With ageing the avidity of virus influenza-specific antibody increased in females of both strains. Moreover, ageing affected IgG2a/IgG1 and IgG2c/IgG1 ratios (reflecting Thl/Th2 balance) in male BALB/c mice and female C57BL/6 mice, respectively. Consequently, differently from young mice exhibiting the similar ratios in male and female mice, in aged female mice of both strains IgG2a(c)/IgG1 ratios were shifted towards a less effective IgG1 response (stimulated by IL-4 cytokines) compared with males. The age-related alterations in IgG subclass profiles in both strains correlated with those in IFN-gamma/IL-4 production level ratio in splenocyte cultures restimulated with TIV. These findings stimulate further research to formulate sex-specific strategies to improve efficacy of influenza vaccine in the elderly.

AB  - Males exhibit stronger sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity, but weaker primary CD4 + T-cell (auto) immune responses. To test the role of catecholamines, major end-point SNS mediators, in this dimorphism, influence of propranolol (beta-adrenoceptor blocker) on mitogen/neuroantigen-stimulated CD4 + T cells from female and male EAE rat draining lymph node (dLN) cell cultures was examined. Male rat dLNs exhibited higher noradrenaline concentration and frequency of beta(2)-adrenoceptor-expressing CD4 + T lymphocytes and antigen presenting cells. Propranolol, irrespective of exogenous noradrenaline presence, more prominently augmented IL-2 production and proliferation of CD4 + lymphocytes in male than female rat dLN cell cultures. In neuroantigen-stimulated dLN cells of both sexes propranolol increased IL-1 beta and IL-23/p19 expression and IL-17 + CD4 + cell frequency, but enhanced IL-17 production only in male rat CD4 + lymphocytes, thereby abrogating sexual dimorphism in IL-17 concentration observed in propranolol-free cultures. Thus, beta-adrenoceptor-mediated signalling may contribute to sex bias in rat IL-17-producing cell secretory capacity.

AB  - The study investigated mechanisms underlying sex differences in thymic involution in Dark Agouti rats. Adverse effects of aging on thymus were more pronounced in males than in females. Thymi from old males exhibited more prominent: (i) fibro-adipose degeneration which correlated with greater intensity of thymic oxidative stress and enhanced thymic TGF- and IL-6 expression and (ii) decline in thymopoiesis, as suggested by the number of the most mature CD4+CD8-/CD4-CD8+ single positive (SP) TCRhigh thymocytes. The greater accumulation of adipose tissue in old male thymus was linked with greater age-related increase in thymic expression of PPAR and STAT3, a transcription factor regulating the expression of PPAR downstream genes, in male than in female rats. In aged thymi of both sexes the early CD4-CD8- double negative (DN) stage of thymocyte development was affected, so relative accumulation of the least mature CD45RC+CD2- cells followed by decreased frequency of their DN and CD4+CD8+ double positive (DP) TCR- descendants was observed. Additionally, in old males, because of the increased thymic expression of Nur77, a nuclear receptor involved in negative selection, and decreased CD90 (a negative regulator of thymocyte selection threshold) MFI on DP TCRint thymocytes, less efficient positive/more efficient negative selection was found. Moreover, in male rats, thymocyte post-selection differentiation/maturation was skewed towards CD4-CD8+ SP TCRhigh cells compared with age-matched females, reflecting, at least partly, greater IL-15 expression in their thymi. The study indicated mechanisms underlying sex-based differences in age-related thymic changes and consequently necessity of sex-specific approaches in designing strategies to rejuvenate thymus.

AB  - The study examined sex-specificities in age-related changes in BALB/c mice IgG antibody responses to immunisation with trivalent inactivated split-virus influenza bulk. Aging diminished the total serum IgG antibody responses to H1N1 and H3N2 and B influenza virus antigens in mice of both sexes, but they remained greater in aged females. This sex difference in aged mice correlated with the greater post-immunisation increase in the frequency of spleen germinal centre (GC) B cells and more favourable T follicular regulatory (Tfr)/GC B cell ratio, as Tfr cells are suggested to control antibody production through suppression of glycolysis. The greater post-immunisation GC B cell response in aged females compared with males correlated with the greater proliferation of B cells and CD4+ cells in splenocyte cultures from aged females restimulated with inactivated split-virus influenza from the bulk. To support the greater post-immunisation increase in the frequency GC B cell in aged females was more favourable Tfr/T follicular helper (Tfh) cell ratio. Additionally, compared with aged males, in age-matched females the greater avidity of serum IgG antibodies was found. However, in aged females IgG2a/IgG1 antibody ratio, reflecting spleen Th1/Th2 cytokine balance, was shifted towards IgG1 when compared with age-matched male mice. This shift was ascribed to a more prominent decline in the titres of functionally important IgG2a antibodies in females with aging. The study suggest that biological sex should be considered as a variable in designing strategies to manipulate with immune outcome of immunisation in aged animals, and possibly, at very long distance, humans.

AB  - Pharmacological blockade of alpha(1)-adrenoceptor is shown to influence development of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an IL-17-producing CD4+TCR+ (Th17) cell-mediated disease mimicking multiple sclerosis. Considering significance of CD4+ cell priming for the clinical outcome of EAE, the study examined alpha(1)-adrenoceptor-mediated influence of catecholamines, particularly those derived from draining lymph node (dLN) cells (as catecholamine supply from nerve fibers decreases with the initiation of autoimmune diseases) for CD4+ cell priming. The results confirmed diminishing effect of immunization on nerve fiber-derived noradrenaline supply and showed that antigen presenting and CD4+ cells synthesize catecholamines, while antigen presenting cells and only CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) express alpha(1)-adrenoceptor. The analysis of influence of alpha(1)-adrenoceptor antagonist prazosin on the myelin basic protein (MBP)-stimulated CD4+ lymphocytes in dLN cell culture showed their diminished proliferation in the presence of prazosin. This was consistent with prazosin enhancing effect on Treg frequency and their Foxp3 expression in these cultures. The latter was associated with upregulation of TGF-beta expression. Additionally, prazosin decreased antigen presenting cell activation and affected their cytokine profile by diminishing the frequency of cells that produce Th17 polarizing cytokines (IL-1 beta and IL-23) and increasing that of IL-10-producing cells. Consistently, the frequency of all IL-17A+ cells and those co-expressing GM-CSF within CD4+ lymphocytes was decreased in prazosin-supplemented MBP-stimulated dLN cell cultures. Collectively, the results indicated that dLN cell-derived catecholamines may influence EAE development by modulating interactions between distinct subtypes of CD4+ T cells and antigen presenting cells through alpha(1)-adrenoceptor and consequently CD4+ T cell priming.

AB  - Objective: We examined the effect of beta-adrenoceptor (AR) blockade in the preclinical phase of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the most commonly used model of multiple sclerosis, on the development of primary CD4+ T-cell responses in draining lymph nodes (dLNs). Methods: CD11b+ cell migration to dLNs, CD4+ T-cell activation/proliferation, and IL-17+ CD4+ (Th17) cell numbers in dLN and spinal cord (SC) were examined in male and female Dark Agouti rats using flow cytometry analysis. Results: Irrespective of sex, in propranolol-treated (PT) rats, migration of CD11b+ antigen-presenting cells from the site of immunization to dLNs was impaired compared with saline-treated controls and consequently the frequency of all CD11b+ cells in dLNs and activated cells among them, too. This correlated with decreased expression of CCL19/21 transcripts in dLNs. Consistently, the frequency of activated/proliferating cells among dLN CD4+ T cells was reduced in PT rats. Additionally, propranolol reduced the number of Th17 cells in dLNs and SC. Consistently, male and female PT rats exhibited a decreased incidence of EAE and prolonged duration of the asymptomatic disease phase. Conclusion: This study suggests that sympathetic dysregulation is involved in the outbreak of clinical EAE. (C) 2019 S. Karger AG, Basel

AB  - The systemic and extra- gonadal levels of 17 beta-estradiol (E2) change during aging, and affect the expression of estrogen receptors (ERs) in the immune cells of both females and males. The age-related cessation of ovarian function in females, as well as the tissue-specific expression of enzyme aromatase (estrogen synthase which significantly rises with the advancing age) in both males and females, both determine the concentration of E2 to which immune cells may be exposed. The present study was set up to investigate the direct influence of E2 in vitro on the secretory profile of peritoneal macrophages from young and naturally menopausal female rats, and from young and middle-aged male rats. The involvement of receptor(s) responsible for mediating the effects of E2 in vitro was examined by use of antagonists specific for ERa or ER beta. Whereas in macrophages from young female rats E2 treatment diminished interleukin (IL)-1 beta secretion, it increased it in young males, and the middleaged females. The in vitro E2 treatment increased tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha release by macrophages from young rats of both sexes, while it increased macrophage IL-6 release independently of both sex and age. At the same time, E2 decreased hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production in macrophages from females, and increased it in male rats of both ages, whereas it diminished nitric oxide (NO) release in all experimental groups. Inspite of the sex-and age-specific effects of E2 on macrophage urea release, E2 did not affect the NO/urea ratio in macrophages from female rats, and diminished it in macrophages from both young and middle-aged male rats. Independently of the sex and age, E2 stimulated the release of inflammatory cytokines predominantly via macrophage ER alpha, and inhibited the IL-1 beta release in young females via ER beta. In contrast, E2 increased macrophage H2O2 and urea production by activating ER beta, but diminished their release via ER alpha. Our study may contribute to better understanding of the complex role(s) that E2 may play in innate immunity during aging, and that are dependent of sex.

AB  - Aims: Some gut commensals can be protective, whereas others are implicated as necessary for development of inflammatory/autoimmune diseases. Peritoneal immune cells may play an important role in promoting auto-immunity in response to gut microbiota. This study investigated the phenotype and the function of peritoneal immune cells in the autoimmunity-resistant Albino Oxford (AO), and the autoimmunity-prone Dark Agouti (DA) rat strains upon stimulation with their own colonic E. coli or Enterococcus. Main methods: Rats were intraperitoneally injected with their own E. coli or Enterococcus. Peritoneal cells isolated two days later were tested for nitric oxide (NO) and cytokine production, and for arginase and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity. The phenotype of cells was determined using flow cytometry. Key findings: While the Enterococcus injection did not affect the composition of peritoneal cells in AO rats, the E. coli treatment increased the percentages of activated CD11b(int)HIS48(hi) neutrophils, and decreased the proportion of resident (CD11b(hi)HIS48(int/low), CD163+ CD86+) and anti-inflammatory CD68+ CD206+ macrophages. E. coli increased the production of NO and urea, but preserved their ratio in cells from AO rats. Conversely, both E. coli and Enterococcus diminished the proportion of resident and anti-inflammatory macrophages, increased the proportion of activated neutrophils, and induced inflammatory polarization of peritoneal cells in DA rats. However, injection of E. coli maintained the ratio of typical CD11b(int)HIS48(int) neutrophils in DA rats, which correlated with the sustained MPO activity. Significance: The rat strain differences in peritoneal cell response to own commensal microbiota may contribute to differential susceptibility to inflammatory/autoimmune diseases.

AB  - The current study investigated a potential modulating effect of orally applied Lactobacillus rhamnosus 64 (LB64) during the early postnatal period (day of life: similar to 3-30), during young adult period (day of life: 31-70) or throughout experiment, on parameters of trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis in adult rats. Treatment with LB64 during early postnatal, but not during young adult period reduced clinical damage score, neutrophil and macrophage infiltration into colon, the level of cytokine and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, but had no influence on other parameters of oxidative damage. Early postnatal treatment with LB64 also increased the diversity of fecal Bifidobacteria and Eubacteria, and improved maturation of ileal villi in 30-days old rats. When LB64 is applied during a critical period early in life, it affects immune system functioning of adults, probably by interactions with the mucosal immune system of the gastrointestinal tract that provides immune system maturation and shapes the overall immune response.

abstract = "The current study investigated a potential modulating effect of orally applied Lactobacillus rhamnosus 64 (LB64) during the early postnatal period (day of life: similar to 3-30), during young adult period (day of life: 31-70) or throughout experiment, on parameters of trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis in adult rats. Treatment with LB64 during early postnatal, but not during young adult period reduced clinical damage score, neutrophil and macrophage infiltration into colon, the level of cytokine and myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, but had no influence on other parameters of oxidative damage. Early postnatal treatment with LB64 also increased the diversity of fecal Bifidobacteria and Eubacteria, and improved maturation of ileal villi in 30-days old rats. When LB64 is applied during a critical period early in life, it affects immune system functioning of adults, probably by interactions with the mucosal immune system of the gastrointestinal tract that provides immune system maturation and shapes the overall immune response.",

AB  - The study explored influence of biological sex on development of humoral immune response to seasonal trivalent whole inactivated virus (WIV) and split virus (SV) influenza vaccines in outbred Swiss mouse model. To this end, mice of both sexes were immunized with WIV (WIV mice) and SV vaccines (SV mice) and examined for specific antibody response. Irrespective of sex, total IgG and neutralizing antibody responses to distinct virus strains were weaker in SV than in WIV mice. In WIV mice of both sexes, irrespective of strain specificity, IgG isotype response was dominated by IgG2a antibodies, while in SV mice nearly equal representation of IgG2a and IgG1 antibodies was found. The analyses of sex differences showed higher titers of H1N1-specific and both H1N1- and H3N2-specific total IgG and neutralizing antibodies in female WIV and SV mice, respectively. Additionally, sexual dimorphism in IgG subclass profile depended on vaccine type. Specifically, compared with males, in females WIV shifted IgG2a/IgG1 antibody ratio towards IgG2a isotype on the account of weaker IgG1 response, whereas in SV mice, irrespective of virus strain, IgG2a and IgG1 isotypes were equally represented in both sexes. These findings indicate the vaccine type-dependent sex bias in antibody response to inactivated influenza vaccines.

AB  - Aims: The study examined the influence of sex and mouse strain on germinal center (GC) reaction and antibody responses to seasonal split trivalent influenza vaccine (TIV). Main methods: C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice of both sexes were immunized with TIV and examined for specific antibody response by ELISA. Splenic T follicular regulatory (Tfr), T follicular helper (Tfh) and GC B cells are detected by flow cytometry. The proliferative response of splenocytes, and concentrations of IFN-gamma and IL-4 upon restimulation with vaccine antigens were examined by 7-AAD staining and ELISA, respectively. Key findings: BALB/c mice developed more robust IgG responses to vaccine type A antigens than their sexmatched C57BL/6 counterparts, while that to B antigen did not differ between strains. In both strains IgG responses against type A vaccine antigens were greater in females than in males. The greater IgG responses correlated with lower splenic Tfr/Tfh and Tfr/GC B cell ratios and greater vaccine antigen-specific proliferative responses of CD4+ and B cells in splenocyte cultures. In both mouse strains IgG2a(c)/IgG1 ratios were comparable between sexes, but lower in BALB/c than in C57BL/6 mice indicating a shift in Th1/Th2 balance towards Th2 response in BALB/c ones. Consistently, splenocytes from BALB/c mice produced more IL-4 and less IFN-gamma than those from C57BL/6 mice. Significance: The study indicated that magnitude of humoral response to influenza type A haemagglutinins depends on mouse strain and sex, and thereby set background for the vaccination strategies taking into account biological sex, and in a longterm perspective individual differences in immune reactivity.

AB  - Rats of Albino Oxford (AO) strain in our animal facility exhibit a longer average healthy life span than rats of Dark Agouit (DA) strain. Since chronic activation of macrophages contributes to chronic low level inflammation common in older age, elucidation of the changes in middle-aged rats could be useful in prevention of unbalanced inflammatory response in advanced age. We have analysed the phenotype of unelicited and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages from young and middle-aged DA and AO rats and tested functions of these cells following stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in vitro. Unelicited cells from middle-aged DA rats produced higher amounts of proinflammatory mediators interleukin-6 (IL-6) and nitric oxide (NO), but have a diminished response to LPS stimulation then cells from young rats, in spite of increased frequency of TLR4- and CD14-expressing mature macrophages. Injection of thioglycollate robustly increased overall cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, while diminishing their response to LPS stimulation. In middle-aged DA rats injection of thioglycollate diminished IL-6 production, but increased it in response to LPS stimulation. Quite the contrary to DA rats, the macrophages from middle-aged AO rats have released diminished levels of TNF-alpha, and NO, whereas urea production was strongly increased, when compared to the macrophages from young rats. Although the thioglycollate injection has increased the proportion of CD86(+)MHCII(+) mature macrophages in young rats, and percentages of activated TLR4(+) macrophages in both age groups of AO rats, it has not affected the cytokine production in young rats' macrophages, and the TNF-alpha production in middle-aged rats' macrophages. Moreover, the injection of thioglycollate has robustly increased the production of urea in macrophages derived from both age groups of AO rats. Although middle-aged rats of both strains were healthy during experiment, differences between the inflammatory responses of peritoneal macrophages of middle-aged rats of these strains might be one of the contributing factors defining their health in their advanced age. Development of strategies for the prevention of undesirable inflammatory changes in the elderly would benefit from the prospective study of the middle-aged. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc.

AB  - Macrophages undergo significant functional alterations during aging. The aim of the present study was to investigate changes of rat macrophage functions and response to M1/M2 polarization signals with age. Therefore, resident and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages from young (3-month-old) and aged (18-19-month-old) rats were tested for phagocytic capacity and ability to secrete inflammatory mediators following in vitro stimulation with LPS and GM-CSF, and IL-4, prototypic stimulators for classically (M1) and alternatively activated (M2) macrophages, respectively. Aging increased the frequency of monocyte-derived (CCR7+ CD68+) and the most mature (CD163+ CD68+) macrophages within resident and thioglycollate-elicited peritoneal macrophages, respectively. The ability to phagocyte zymosan of none of these two cell subsets was affected by either LPS and GM-CSF or IL-4. The upregulated production of IL-1 beta, IL-6 and IL-10 and downregulated that of TGF-beta was observed in response to LPS in resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from rats of both ages. GM-CSF elevated production of IL-1 beta and IL-6 in resident macrophages from aged rats and in thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from young rats. Unexpectedly, IL-4 augmented production of proinflammatory mediators, IL-1 beta and IL-6, in resident macrophages from aged rats. In both resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages aging decreased NO/urea ratio, whereas LPS but not GM-SCF, shifted this ratio toward NO in the macrophages from animals of both ages. Conversely, IL-4 reduced NO/urea ratio in resident and thioglycollate-elicited macrophages from young rats only. In conclusion, our study showed that aging diminished GM-CSF-triggered polarization of elicited macrophages and caused paradoxical IL-4-driven polarization of resident macrophages toward proinflammatory M1 phenotype. This age-related deregulation of macrophage inflammatory mediator secretion and phagocytosis in response to M1/M2 activators may lead to the deficient control of infectious and/or inflammatory diseases in advanced age.

AB  - There are little data on modulatory effects of estrogens on rat dendritic cell (DC) responses to inflammatory stimuli, and consequently their ability to activate and polarize CD4+ T lymphocyte-mediated immune responses. Splenic conventional DCs from young female Albino Oxford rats were activated in vitro with LPS (TLR4 agonist) or R848 (TLR7/8 agonist) in the presence and absence of 17 beta-estradiol (E2), and their allostimulatory and CD4+ lymphocyte polarizing ability in mixed leukocyte culture (MLC) were studied. Irrespective of the E2 presence, LPS and R848 up-regulated the expression of MHC II on DCs, so they exhibited enhanced allostimulatory capacity in co-culture with CD4+ lymphocytes. On the other hand, E2 promoted stimulatory action of both TLRs on OX62+ DC IL-23 production, augmented their stimulatory effects on IL-6 and IL-1 beta production, but diminished their enhancing effects on the expression IL-10 and IL-27 by DCs. Consequently, in MLC, OX62+ DCs activated/matured in the co-presence of E2 and either LPS or R848 increased the levels of IL-17, the signature Th17 cell cytoldne, when compared with those activated/matured in the absence of E2. GM-CSF levels were also increased in these MLC. Given that the expression of IL-7 mRNA was diminished in DCs activated/matured in the co presence of E2 and TLR, this increase most likely did not reflect enhanced differentiation of Th cells producing GM-CSF only (Th-GM). Conclusions: E2 augments capacity of LPS- and R848-activated/matured DCs from young rat spleen to induce differentiation of IL-17- and GM-CSF-producing cells. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - Given that granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) is identified as the key factor to endow auto-reactive Th cells with the potential to induce neuroinflammation in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) models, the frequency and phenotype of GM-CSF-producing (GM-CSF+) Th cells in draining lymph nodes (dLNs) and spinal cord (SC) of Albino Oxford (AO) and Dark Agouti (DA) rats immunized for EAE were examined. The generation of neuroantigen-specific GM-CSF+ Th lymphocytes was impaired in dLNs of AO rats (relatively resistant to EAE induction) compared with their DA counterparts (susceptible to EAE) reflecting impaired CD4+ lymphocyte proliferation and less supportive of GM-CSF+ Th cell differentiation dLN cytokine microenvironment. Immunophenotyping of GM-CSF+ Th cells showed their phenotypic heterogeneity in both strains and revealed lower frequency of IL-17+ IFN-gamma+, IL-17+ IFN-gamma-, and IL-17-IFN-gamma+ cells accompanied by higher frequency of IL-17-IFN-gamma- cells among them in AO than in DA rats. Compared with DA, in AO rats was also found (i) slightly lower surface density of CCR2 (drives accumulation of highly pathogenic GM-CSF+ IFN-gamma+ Th17 cells in SC) on GM-CSF+ IFN-gamma+ Th17 lymphocytes from dLNs, and (ii) diminished CCL2 mRNA expression in SC tissue, suggesting their impaired migration into the SC. Moreover, dLN and SC cytokine environments in AO rats were shown to be less supportive of GM-CSF+ IFN-gamma+ Th17 cell differentiation (judging by lower expression of mRNAs for IL-1 beta, IL-6 and IL-23/p19). In accordance with the (i) lower frequency of GM-CSF+ Th cells in dLNs and SC of AO rats and their lower GM-CSF production, and (ii) impaired CCL2 expression in the SC tissue, the proportion of proinflammatory monocytes among peripheral blood cells and their progeny (CD45(hi) cells) among the SC CD11b+ cells were reduced in AO compared with DA rats. Collectively, the results indicate that the strain specificities in efficacy of several mechanisms controlling (auto) reactive CD4+ lymphocyte expansion/differentiation into the cells with pathogenic phenotype and migration of the latter to the SC contribute to AO rat resistance to EAE.

AB  - An outbred mouse model was used to determine if antibody response to immunization with whole-virus trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV) differs between the sexes. The antibody response was examined one (serum titer of IgM antibodies), and three and six weeks post-immunization (serum titer of neutralizing and total IgG antibodies and IgG subclass profile). Compared with male in female mice was found (i) the more robust IgM response against all influenza strains included in TIV and (ii) more vigorous neutralizing antibody and total IgG responses against H1N1 influenza virus at both the examined time points post-immunization. The total IgG antibody response against H3N2 and B influenza viruses was comparable between female and male mice three weeks post-immunization, but significantly greater in female mice six weeks post-immunization. The neutralizing antibody response against H3N2 and B influenza viruses did not significantly differ between sexes at both the examined points post-immunization. Finally, three weeks post-immunization subclass profile of IgG specific to the influenza strains included in TIV differed between female and male mice, reflecting the lower titer of IgG1 antibodies in female ones, so that IgG2a (contributing mainly to the total IgG) to IgG1 ratio in mice of this sex was shifted toward the former. In agreement with this shift, compared with male mice, Th1/Th2 balance in female mice was shifted toward Th1, as shown by ELISPOT. Collectively, the results showed influenza virus strain-dependent sexual dimorphism in the magnitude, dynamics and characteristics of antibody response in outbred mice immunized with TIV.
