Voltage-Gated Proton Channel Hv1 Controls TLR9 Activation in Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells

Veröffentlicht: von & gespeichert unter Allgemein.

The voltage-gated proton channel Hv1 regulates proton fluxes across membranes, thereby influencing pH-dependent processes. Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) require a particularly tight regulation of endosomal pH to ensure strong type I IFN secretion exclusively during infection, avoiding autoimmunity. However, whether Hv1 is important for pH control in pDCs is presently unknown. In this study, we… Read more »
