The effect of interleukin-1 receptor associated kinase 4 inhibitor (IRAK4i) I92 or hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatment on gene expression in plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) stimulated with RNA-containing immune complex (RNA-IC). 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. Volcano plots comparing false discovery rate (FDR) versus log2 fold change (FC) for genes from a RNA-IC-stimulated pDCs relative to mock-treated cells, b RNA-IC I92 relative to RNA-IC-treated cells, c RNA-IC HCQ relative to RNA-IC-treated cells, or d RNA-IC HCQ relative to RNA-IC I92-treated cells. Genes labeled in blue are statistically significantly different between the two treatments (FDR < 0.05)
