ResumenDendritic cells (DCs) play a critical role in the initiation of the immunological response against Leishmania parasites. However, the receptors involved in amastigote-dendritic cell interaction are unknown, especially in absence of opsonizing antibodies. We have studied the interaction of Leishmania pifanoi axenic amastigotes with the C-type lectin DC-specific intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM)-3-grabbing nonintegrin (DC-SIGN, CD209), a receptor for ICAM-2, ICAM-3, human immunodeficiency virus gp120, and Ebola virus. L. pifanoi amastigotes interact with immature human dendritic cells and CD209-transfected K562 cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner. Leishmania amastigote binding to human dendritic cells and DC-SIGN-transfected cells is inhibited by a function-blocking DC-SIGN-specific monoclonal antibody. More importantly, this monoclonal antibody dramatically reduces internalization of Leishmania amastigotes by immature human DCs. These results constitute the first description of a nonviral pathogen ligand for DC-SIGN and provide evidence for a relevant role of DC-SIGN in Leishmania amastigote uptake by dendritic cells. Our finding has important implications for Leishmania host-cell interaction and the immunoregulation of cutaneous leishmaniasis.
