Differential effects on gene expression in RNA-containing immune complex (RNA-IC)-stimulated plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) by the interleukin-1 receptor associated kinase 4 inhibitor (IRAK4i) I92 and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ). RNA-sequencing analysis was performed on RNA-IC-stimulated pDCs from healthy donors (n = 4), cultivated for 6 h in the presence or absence of I92 or HCQ. The heat map showing the mean log2 fold change values for the 975 activation signature genes from RNA-IC versus mock-stimulated cells (left), RNA-IC I92 versus RNA-IC (middle left), RNA-IC HCQ versus RNA-IC (middle right), and the difference between the two compounds RNA-IC I92 versus RNA-IC HCQ treated cultures (right)
