Abstract

Tissue environment has an instructive role in establishing resident macrophage phenotypes. Sakai et al. provide evidence for a two-step model in which liver-derived signals that include DLL4, TGF-β, and desmosterol induce Kupffer cell (liver-resident macrophage) differentiation by regulating the expression and activities of RBPJ, SMADs, and LXRα.
