HIF-1α is a key regulator in potentiating suppressor activity and limiting the microbicidal capacity of MDSC-like cells during visceral leishmaniasis
Mice were infected with L. donovani and sacrificed at various time points after infection. Neutrophils were excluded from all analysis involving monocytes. (A) Representative FACS plots depicting the gating strategy used to identify neutrophils (left) and percentage of neutrophils in the spleen of infected mice (right).(B) Gating strategy used to identify Ly6C+ monocytes (left) and percentage of splenic Ly6Chi (upper graph) and Ly6Clo/int (lower graph) monocytes. (C) Percentage of CD11c+ myeloid cells. (D) Percentage of CD11c+ Ly6C+ (left histogram raw and upper graph) and Ly6Clo/int (right histogram raw and lower graph) monocytes. All data represent mean ± SEM of one of 4 independent experiments, n = 4.
