The BCR-ABL TKI imatinib and nilotinib or IL-10 inhibit phosphorylation of Akt in human moDC. Western blot analysis of total Akt levels and its phosphorylated form in purified immature CD209+ moDC (of four different donors). moDC were generated in vitro with GM-CSF and IL-4 alone (4/GM) or with additional (A) imatinib (3 μM), (B) nilotinib (3 μM), (C) Akt inhibitor MK2206 (Akt-inh., 300 nM) or (D) IL-10 (10 ng/mL). Indicated time refers to further treatment of cells prior to cell lysis (see Methods). (E-G) GPNMB protein levels in moDC were analyzed by western blotting. GAPDH served as loading control. Exemplary results from at least three independent experiments using different donors are presented.
