    Effect of ICOSL on CD40L presentation and reception in SLB model for T FH cell- GC B cell interaction. a , Activated human T cells that express ICOS and CD40L were incubated with SLB containing ICAM-1 and UCHT1 (anti-CD3) as a basal condition with a ring of ICAM-1 surrounding a central cluster enriched in T cell receptor enriched extracellular vesicles by 15 minutes 26 . This condition resulted in low presentation of CD40L in punctate structures detected by anti-CD40L mAb that accumulated in the same central synapse with the TCR enriched extracellular vesicles. Addition of ICOSL the SLB resulted in strong central accumulation of fluorescent ICOSL with the TCR enriched extracellular vesicles, but no increase in CD40L presentation. Addition of <t>CD40</t> the SLB resulted in a significant increase in CD40L accumulation, which we refer to as reception because its receptor dependent. When ICOSL and CD40 were added the reception of CD40L was further significantly enhanced over the level observed with CD40 alone. Thus, ICOSL ligation in the centre of the immunological synapse increases CD40L reception. All levels are shown in gray scale except CD40L panels, for which the pseudocolor scale is indicated. Scale bar 5 µm. b , Human T FH cells were incubated with SLB containing ICAM-1 and UCHT1 (anti-CD3). Addition of ICOSL resulted in increased accumulation of CgB at the synapse centre. Addition of CD40 did not further increased CgB accumulation.

    Article Snippet: For the experiment with dopamine receptor block, 2 x 105 sorted germinal centre B cells were stimulated with 5 μM of freshly prepared DA with or without 50nM of Haloperidol (Tocris) for 2 h. Incubation media was then replaced with fresh media containing anti-CD40 (1 μg/ml, BioLegend) and IL-21 (10 ng/ml, Peprotech), cells were incubated for 5 days and plasma cell differentiation was assessed.

    Effects of ICOS ligation at the immunological synapse. a , Representative images of ICAM-1 ring (white) around CD40L (pseudocolor scale) in the presence or absence of CD40 and ICOSL at physiological densities on the supported lipid bilayer (SLB) containing ICAM-1 and UCHT1. Scale bar 5 µm. b , c , Plots represent CD40L MFI of individual activated human T ( b ) or T FH ( c ) cells forming synapses (n=3). d , Representative images of chromogranin B stain in the presence or absence of ICOSL at the immunological synapse. e , Plots represent CgB fluorescent intensity of individual activated T FH and non-T FH cells forming synapses (n=3). b,c,e , ns, not significant, (***p ≤ 0.001) and (****p ≤ 0.0001) nonparametric Mann-Whitney test (U test). f , Representative images of CgB + T FH cells (red) forming synapses with allogeneic B cells (green).

    Biological evaluation of LiQD Cornea. ( A ) Immortalized HCECs cultured on LiQD Cornea hydrogels and control tissue culture plastic, showing that the hydrogels support epithelial growth. ( B ) Expression of T cell costimulatory molecules in BMDCs. Expression of CD40, CD80, and CD86 was measured by flow cytometry, and data are presented as a ratio of mean fluorescence intensity of the experimental samples to untreated BMDCs. LPS acted as a positive control for BMDC activation; * P ≤ 0.05 by Student’s t test. ( C ) Expression of pro-inflammatory M1 (CD86) and anti-inflammatory M2 (CD206) phenotypic markers at 4 and 7 days after exposure of naïve BMDM precursors to LiQD Cornea hydrogels. ( D ) Example of a human corneal perforation. ( E ) Postsurgical photos of rabbits immediately after injecting LiQD Cornea into a perforated cornea. The two-stepped surgically induced perforation can be seen. At day 2 after surgery, the air bubble placed under the cornea during surgery is prominent, indicating that the perforation was completely sealed. The perforated cornea was completed healed by 28 days after operation. Photo credit: Damien Hunter, University of Sydney. ( F ) Mini-pig corneas where the LiQD Cornea was tested as an alternative to a donor allograft, showing the gross appearance of the LiQD Cornea, syngeneic graft, and an unoperated eye at 12 months after surgery.
