Submitter Supplied Information

Dendritic cells (DCs) are a complex group of cells which play a critical role in vertebrate immunity. They are subdivided into conventional DC (cDC) subsets (CD11b and CD8alpha in mouse) and plasmacytoid DCs (pDCs). Natural killer cells are innate lymphocytes involved in the recognition and killing of abnormal self cells, including virally infected cells or tumor cells. DCs and NK cells are activated very early upon viral infections and regulate one another. However, the global responses of DC and NK cells early after viral infection in vivo and their molecular regulation are not entirely characterized. The goal of this experiment was to use global gene expression profiling to assess the global genetic reprogramming of DC and NK cells during a viral infection in vivo, as compared to B lymphocytes, and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms
