Human follicular dendritic cell (FDC)-like cells (FLC) have been utilized for the in vitro analysis of germinal center reactions. However, there is no consensus whether FLC represent FDC in vitro. The purpose of the present study has therefore been to determine distinguishing features of FDC and FLC in vitro. The expression of CD40, CD54, CD49d, cytokine (gamma-IFN and IL-4)-dependent MHC-class II, and CD106 was observed to be specific for the determination of FDC in long-term culture. The cytokine-dependent emperipolesis of germinal center B cells was establised as another discriminating property for FDC in vitro. In 2 out of 72 long-term cultures of FDC, we encountered dividing cells among the non-dividing population of FDC. The dividing cells expressed accessory molecules similar to those of FDC but showed emperipolesis only for the initial few days of their growth. FDC did not enhance the CD40-dependent proliferation of germinal center B cells; in contrast, FLC augumented it. Both types of cells produced a significant amount of cytokine-dependent IL-6. Further studies are needed to determine whether FLC originate from FDC in vitro. [less ▲]

Follicular dendritic cells (FDC) are unique non-lymphoid cells found only in lymph follicles. They play a part in the survival, proliferation and differentiation of B cells. To analyse the influence of FDC on B-lymphocyte proliferation, we isolated them from human tonsils on albumin gradients and treated them with mitomycin C to prevent the multiplication of lymphoid cells harboured in their cytoplasmic evaginations. FDC cultured for 12-16 h remained attached to the substrate; non-adherent cells were carefully eliminated by washing. Purified B cells cultured alone or with contaminant-cleared FDC were maintained for 2 days in the presence or absence of various stimulants, after which tritiated thymidine uptake by these cells was measured. In the absence of activators, FDC did not induce B-cell multiplication. B cells cultured in the presence of FDC exhibited increased 3H-TdR uptake when activated with anti-CD40 MoAb, anti-immunoglobulin MoAb or transferrin, but not when stimulated with Staphylococcus aureus strain Cowan I (SAC) at a given concentration. In the latter case, B-cell proliferation clearly decreased. In control cocultures where mitomycin-C-treated non-adherent cells were used instead of FDC in the presence of the different stimulants, no increase in B-cell proliferation was observed. The results suggest that, inside the germinal centres, FDC modulation of B-cell proliferation depends on the activation state of the B cells and on the stimulant encountered. [less ▲]

We have isolated two subtypes of helper T cells from human tonsils: CD4+CD57+ cells, mostly located in the germinal center (GC), and CD4+CD57- cells, distributed through the interfollicular areas but also present in the GC. In a functional study, we have compared the capacities of these T-cell subtypes to stimulate B cells in cocultures. In order to block T-cell proliferation while maintaining their activation level, we pretreated isolated T cells with mitomycin C prior to culture in the presence of B cells and added polyclonal activators such as PHA and Con A, combined or not with IL-2. Contrary to CD4+ CD57- cells, CD4+CD57+ cells did not markedly enhance B-cell proliferation. Even when sIgD.B cells typical of germinal center cells were tested, the CD4+CD57+ cells had no significant effect. This is in accordance with the location of these cells: They mainly occupy the light zones of the GC where few B cells divide. Even when added to preactivated, actively proliferating cells, CD4+CD57 cells failed to modulate B-cell multiplication. On the supernatants of B-cell-T-cell cocultures, we examined by the ELISA technique the effect of T cells on Ig synthesis. Contrary to CD57+ T cells, whose effect was strong, CD57- T cells weakly stimulated Ig synthesis. More IgM than IgG was generally found. Because CD57 antigen is a typical marker of natural killer cells, we tested the cytolytic activity of tonsillar CD4+CD57+ cells on K562 target cells. Unlike NK cells, neither CD4+CD57+ nor CD4+CD57- cells exhibit any cytotoxicity. Thus, germinal center CD4+CD57+ cells are not cytolytic and do not strongly stimulate either B-cell proliferation or Ig secretion. CD4+CD57- cells, however, enhance B-cell proliferation and differentiation, thus acting like the classical helper cells of the T-dependent areas. [less ▲]

Follicular dendritic cells (FDC) are only located within follicles of secondary lymphoid tissues. The origin of this peculiar cell type is not clearly defined. To contribute to this study, we applied two monoclonal antibodies (MAS516 and 5B5) considered as specific for fibroblasts to tonsil cryosections and to isolated follicular dendritic cells. On the basis of an enzyme cocktail digestion of human tonsils and a fractionation procedure on albumin gradients, FDC can be prepared in the form of cell aggregates with associated lymphoid cells. MAS516 reacts with surface membrane molecules expressed by human fibroblasts, tissue macrophages and peripheral blood monocytes. With immunoperoxidase assays on tonsil cryosections connective tissue cells and macrophages are stained. Inside germinal centres, heavy labelling of the light zone was found. The MAS516 staining pattern is very similar to that of specific FDC markers DRC-1 or BU10. All isolated FDC reacted with MAS516 antibody. 5B5, considered as a typical fibroblast marker, reacts with human prolyl-4-hydroxylase which is an intracellular enzyme related to collagen biosynthesis. In cryosections, interfollicular and capsular areas showed 5B5 positive connective tissue fibroblasts. In germinal centres, some cells presenting features of FDC were 5B5 positive. After cell separation, 25%-50% of the isolated FDC were labelled with this antibody. This positivity of some FDC for 5B5 antibody may support the idea of their fibroblastic origin. The combination of observations realized in situ and after cell purification ensured an unequivocal recognition and identification of FDC.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]

The presence of CD4+, CD57+ T cells in the germinal centers has been reported by several authors. The CD57 antigen is also expressed by natural killer (NK) cells. We purified CD57+ cells from human tonsils and blood by microdissection, rosetting with sheep red blood cells and magnetic cell sorting (MACS) and examined the ultrastructural morphology of these cells. Clear differences were found in cell aspect: blood NK contained large granules which were not found in the tonsillar CD57+ cells. These latter appeared medium-sized and not fully activated. After immunolabeling, the tonsillar CD57+ cells were mainly found in the light zone of the germinal centers. [less ▲]
