Abstract: The complexity of the roles of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) is attributable to their ability to promote or suppress autoimmune diseases. Recent studies have demonstrated that B cells regulate autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS), by producing interleukin (IL)-10. By using CpG DNA as a TLR9 agonist, we investigated the immunoregulatory functions of B cell via TLR9 in MS. Our results indicate that TLR9-mediated IL-10 production by B cells was significantly decreased in MS, and this decrease is likely due to decreased TLR9 expression in memory B cells, suggesting a role of TLR9 in immunoregulation in MS.
