- We previously isolated mesenchymal stromal cells from human tonsils (T-MSCs) and showed the potential of these cells to differentiate into the mesodermal lineage and acquire a follicular dendritic cell (FDC) phenotype under cytokine stimulation. Because these T-MSCs were originally isolated from inflamed tonsillar tissues, we were curious about their activation status in response to innate immune stimuli, such as Toll-like receptors (TLRs). Therefore, we analyzed the expression profile of TLRs in T-MSCs and stimulated the T-MSCs with TLR agonists. TLR3 stimuli induced C-C chemokine receptor type 6 expression in T-MSCs after 24 h. Furthermore, results from cytokine arrays showed increases in epithelial neutrophil-activating peptide-78/C-X-C motif chemokine (CXCL) 5, granulocyte chemotactic protein-2/CXCL6, growth-related oncogene-alpha/CXCL1, interleukin-8/CXCL8, and interferon gamma-induced protein-10/CXCL10. CD54 expression was also increased after TLR3 stimulation. However, co-culturing T-MSCs with human B cells did not induce B-cell proliferation. This suggests that TLR3 stimulates the differentiation of T-MSCs into FDC-like cells and induces chemokine secretion, possibly by recruiting C-X-C chemokine receptor 2-expressing immune cells. In addition, T-MSCs also appeared to exert immunomodulatory effects by inhibiting B-cell proliferation, possibly by down-regulating CD18. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
