Analysis of LC3-associated phagocytosis and antigen presentation - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Ligeon, Laure-Anne; Romao, Susana; Münz, Christian (2017). Analysis of LC3-associated phagocytosis and antigen presentation. In: Botelho, Roberto. Phagocytosis and Phagosomes. New York: Springer, 145-168.

Abstract

The noncanonical macroautophagy pathway, LC3-associated phagocytosis (LAP) has recently emerged as an important catabolic process involved during exogenous antigen processing. It has been described that in human macrophages and dendritic cells the direct recruitment of LC3 to the phagosomal membrane is associated with its maturation impairment, allowing the stabilization of the cargo to prolong antigen presentation on major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules. In this chapter, we describe methods to monitor, manipulate, and understand the role of LAP during MHC class II presentation. We show how to enhance LAP formation resulting in antigen presentation by using zymosan or beads coated with Candida albicans extract. Then, we describe how to determine the localization of Rab7 or Lamp2 on LC3-phagosomes by confocal microscopy, a useful technique to follow phagosome maturation. Finally, we propose an assay to understand how MHC class II antigen presentation can be modulated by the LAP pathway.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
