Abstract: This study continues to explore the plasticity of TLR2 previously described in immune response during Trypanosome cruzi infection. It has been shown that Ly6ChiTLR2hi monocytes were involved in TNF-α; and IL-12 production, whereas Ly6CloTLR2hi monocytes were mainly committed to IL-10 and TNF-α production during T. cruzi infection independently of TLR agonist used (i.e TLR2 or TLR9 agonists). Another difference between the monocyte populations is that the adapter Mal (encoded by TIRAP) has appeared crucial for the cytokine production by Ly6Clo, but not by Ly6Chi monocytes. The protein Mal was necessary to induce cytokine synthesis by Ly6Clo monocytes after triggering TLR2 or TLR9. Finally, our data has suggested that TLR2, TLR9, and Mal/TIRAP controlled differentially the emergence of the different TLR2hi monocyte populations in the spleen. In summary, this study highlights the central role of the T.LR2/Mal tandem in the distinct activity among the monocyte subsets during T. cruzi infection. Such data provide a basis for understanding the challenge posed by the use of TLR2 agonist in immunotherapy.
