GITR is expressed on ILC2s and induces Th2 cytokine secretion in activated ILC2s. a Gating strategy of Lin-CD45+IL-7R+ST2+ ILC2 cells. b Expression of GITR in naïve (white) and IL-33-activated (green) murine white adipose tissue-derived ILC2s compared to the isotype control (gray). Corresponding quantitation of GITR expression shown as MFI+/− SEM, n = 6. c Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) resident ILC2s were isolated from a cohort of naïve C57BL/6 mice and a cohort of activated C57BL/6 mice intraperitoneally challenged with rmIL-33 on 3 consecutive days. Naïve and activated VAT ILC2s were cultured with recombinant mouse (rm) IL-2 and rmIL-7 with DTA-1 (5 µg/mL) or isotype control for 48 h. The levels of IL-5, IL-13, GM-CSF, IL-6, and IL-9 were measured by Luminex on the culture supernatants, n = 6. Error bars are the mean ± SEM. Student’s t-test, ***p < 0.001, ns, non-significant
