Apoptosis susceptibility and endocytic capacity of monocyte-derived dendritic cells from patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome and healthy controls. (A) Percentage of monocyte-derived dendritic cells (moDC) positive for Annexin V analyzed by flow cytometry. Primary Sjögren’s syndrome patients, P immature/mature n = 10; controls, C immature/mature n = 16. (B) Expression of Bim in moDC samples measured by western blot. (C) Uptake of dextran–fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) by moDC. Patients, P immature n = 19 and P mature n = 18; controls, C immature n = 13 and C mature n = 13. MFI, median fluorescence intensity.
