26468543 This study is the first to demonstrate that langerin represents an authentic receptor that binds and internalizes influenza A virus to facilitate infection.
25829141 Data suggest that Langerin (CD207)-mediated binding of Yersinia pestis to antigen-presenting cells (APCs) may promote its dissemination and infection.
25747117 Langerin binds heparin (HEP)-like oligosaccharides in two different binding sites depending on the ligand size.
25650933 The impact of two carbohydrate recognition domains mutations, W264R and F241L, on langerin structure, function, and Birbeck granules assembly.
25584868 Cell-sorting experiments demonstrated that IDO1 expression is found in a subset of CD1a(+)CD14(-)langerin(+) cells, expressing CD103
25551286 The authors not only show that langerin and caveolin-1 co-localize at the cell membrane and in vesicles but that caveolin-1 mediated HIV-1 uptake is an intrinsic restriction mechanism present in human Langerhans cells that prevents HIV-1 infection.
25551286 HIV-1 CA co-localizes with langerin and caveolin-1 at the cell membrane of human Langerhans cells
25516751 Langerin is not expressed by freshly isolated CD1c(+) blood DCs but is rapidly induced on CD1c(+) DCs by serum or TGF-beta via an ALK-3-dependent pathway.
25422308 However, the superoxide dismutase C (SodC) protein of the Mycobacterium leprae cell wall was identified as a langerin-reactive ligand.
25407434 HIV-1 CA co-localizes with langerin and caveolin-1 at the cell membrane of human Langerhans cells
