Choline-binding protein A (CbpA) and pneumolysin (Ply) can induce the expression and release of chemokines by human cells, which might modulate specific immune responses. In dendritic cells (DCs), such effects could be important for the size and character of the immunity induced if administered as vaccines. We studied the induction of CCL and CXCL chemokines by CbpA and Ply in DCs and related signaling pathways.
