Lymphoid organ development: from ontogeny to neogenesis.

Finally, the influence fron the local environment on the LVs in TLOs in different organs must be analyzed. Their studies demonstrate that the roles of the cytokines in lymphoid organ development and inflammation are similar, in that in both contexts they induce chemokines and vascular adhesion molecules. TLOs arise in several instances of chronic inflammation, including autoimmunity, chronic graft rejection, persistent infection summarized in ref.

Figure 2 Diagrammatic rendering of actual staining of a TLO from a mouse salivary gland. Thus, the possibility, though remote, exists that a recapitulation of the developmental program could occur — that is, that LVs in inflammation could arise from veins as they do in development.

TLOs are clearly beneficial in some cancers, particularly if there is a generous component of HEVs Techniques to measure fluid accumulation are available 46 but have not been employed in the local region of a TLO. The identification of markers preferentially expressed or expressed at a high level on TLO LVs would ffom for their preferential inhibition. This may be more feasible and meaningful in a clinical setting, in which a relatively accessible TLO such as the joint in rheumatoid arthritis RA provides a logical study site.

One must be cautious about the possibility that wide-scale inhibition of LVs might result in disastrous lymphedema. At one end are the ‘canonical’ secondary lymphoid organs, including lymph nodes and spleen; at the tto end are ‘ectopic’ or tertiary lymphoid organs, which are cellular accumulations arising during chronic inflammation by the process of lymphoid neogenesis.

Tertiary lymphoid organs TLOs are accumulations of lymphoid cells in chronic inflammation that resemble LNs in their cellular content and organization, high orgah venules, and lymphatic vessels LVs. Sign up for email alerts. The question of LT participation is of particular interest given both its crucial role in lymphoid organ development and its ability to induce TLOs. Topics Discussed in This Paper. Immunofluorescence and microarray studies that compare LECs from acutely inflamed and resting mouse skin reveal increased expression of CCL21 and several other inflammatory genes Seeger and colleagues suggest that developmejt occurs before lymphangiogenesis and gives rise to that process It has been suggested that TLOs differ from SLOs by the absence of a capsule; however, TLOs in a variety of chronic kidney diseases are in contact with a fibrous capsule As noted above, lymphoid chemokines regulate trafficking of lymphocytes and DCs to and within LNs, and their expression 2030 is onyogeny criterion that defines TLOs.

School of Public Health: Are there any genes that are differentially expressed in LVs from TLOs compared with those in the rest of the body? As noted above, new techniques allowing isolation, purification, and single-cell in situ analysis will provide the tools for determination of gene expression. Users nsogenesis refer to the original published version oontogeny the material for the full abstract.

Analysis of lymphocyte, DC, and antigen-trafficking patterns in TLOs in real time in vivo is now possible with the use of mice that express fluorescent markers for HEVs 80 crom LVs 79 The development of lymphoid organs can be viewed as a continuum. For example, B cells appear to be important in the lymphangiogenesis that occurs in LNs during inflammation, but orgwn at the early stages after immunization 13 The ability to isolate LVs on the basis of their antigen expression 77 or transgene induced fluorescence 79 will allow their molecular analysis and comparison to vessels from resting LNs, activated LNs, and TLOs.

LVs in TLOs most likely contribute to fluid balance; understanding the roles of cytokines and cells in LVs in TLOs could be advantageous in efforts to encourage lymphangiogenesis and fluid drainage in situations where the LVs are defective. DCs, macrophages, and T and B cells have been implicated in the regulation of LVs in acute inflammation 1366 — Although acute inflammation can result in defective LVs, TLO LVs appear to function normally in that they drain fluid and transport cells that respond to chemokines and sphingosinephosphate S1P gradients.


We study acute inflammation and animal models of autoimmune diseases, including Type 1 diabetes mellitus and multiple sclerosis.

Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases. The role of stromal cells in Orgxn development and maintenance is becoming better understood 10 as is the response of these cells to neuronal signals, including retinoic acid Her group studies these and other cytokines in autoimmune and infectious diseases.

The involvement of additional cell types is suggested ontogeyn the existence of lymphangioblasts, which are distinct from blood endothelial cells, in developing tadpoles Lymphatic valves prevent backflow and have higher expression of PROX1 than do the cells in the walls of the vessels.

LVs have many functions in homeostasis. Their existence in TLOs adds to the complexity and excitement in this emerging field. The secrets of LVs are being rapidly revealed, but there is much to be learned.

Osteoclast precursors, which include cells with macrophage properties, participate in lymphangiogenesis in a model of TNF transgene— and serum-mediated RA Human and Translational Immunology Program. It has been estimated that — million people worldwide suffer from this painful, disfiguring problem, which can be the result of an anatomical abnormality of LVs of genetic origin primary lymphedema or the result of damage or obstruction of LVs, due to cancer, cancer treatment surgery or radiationor infection secondary lymphedema.

A logical approach to inhibiting this spread would be the use of lymphangiogenesis inhibitors The functions of the LVs in TLOs have not been thoroughly investigated but are worthy of analysis with regard to fluid balance and transport of antigen and naive, activated, and memory lymphocytes. Conduits are very fine microvessels consisting of ECM scaffolding produced by fibroblast reticular cells.
