    Dectin-2 (gene symbol Clec4n) is a C-type lectin expressed by dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages. However, its functional roles and signaling mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Here, we generated Clec4n-/- mice and showed that this molecule is important for host defense against Candida albicans (C. albicans). Clec4n-/- DCs had virtually no fungal α-mannan-induced cytokine production. Dectin-2 signaling induced cytokines through an FcRγ chain and Syk-CARD9-NF-κB-dependent signaling pathway without involvement of MAP kinases. The yeast form of C. albicans induced interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and IL-23 secretion in a Dectin-2-dependent manner. In contrast, cytokine production induced by the hyphal form was only partially dependent on this lectin. Both yeast and hyphae induced Th17 cell differentiation, in which Dectin-2, but not Dectin-1, was mainly involved. Because IL-17A-deficient mice were highly susceptible to systemic candida infection, this study suggests that Dectin-2 is important in host defense against C. albicans by inducing Th17 cell differentiation.
