RESUMO

Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are potent suppressors of T cell immunity in tumors and inflammatory diseases. They are identified by surface expression of CD11b+Gr1+ in mice, and CD11b+Gr1+ cells accumulate in the livers of obese mice. However, many myeloid cells share these CD11b+Gr1+ markers. Accordingly, the aim of this study was to identify the authentic phenotype of MDSCs and investigate their functions in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). C57BL/6J mice were divided into 2 diet groups: a normal control group and high-fat group to induce NAFLD. We demonstrated that monocytic CD11b+Gr1dim cells could be further divided into 2 populations based on side scatter (SSC) during flow cytometry. We found that SSClowCD11b+Gr1dim cells accumulated in the livers of NAFLD mice over time, and that these cells were recruited by the chemokine CCL2 and its receptor CCR2 and might expand in the liver via macrophage colony-stimulating factor stimulation. Furthermore, SSClowCD11b+Gr1dim cells had a strong suppressive ability on T cells; this effect was not observed for SSChighCD11b+Gr1dim cells, and was dependent on nitric oxide production by inducible nitric oxide synthase. Our findings demonstrate that SSClowCD11b+Gr1dim cells represent authentic MDSCs in NAFLD livers, and might serve an important negative feedback function in liver inflammation.
