Authors contributed equally to this manuscript Natural adjuvants, such as bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS), activate antigen presenting cells via Toll-like receptors and, indirectly, increase the survival of antigen-activated T cells. The molecular mechanisms leading to increased survival remain poorly defined. Because T cell clonal expansion leads to high energy demands, we hypothesized that increased glucose uptake and/or utilization in adjuvant-activated T cells could be important molecular event(s) that would lead to adjuvant-associated T cell survival advantage. Using a fluorescent analog of 2-deoxyglucose, 2-NBDG, we measured glucose accumulation and rate of uptake in T cells from mice treated with antigen in the absence or presence of LPS. Although adjuvant activated T cells increased the accumulation of 2-NBDG, the rate of uptake was unchanged compared to cells activated with only antigen. Furthermore, glucose transport inhibitors, cytochalasin B or phloretin, decreased the accumulation of glucose in adjuvant-treated T cells, but this decrease did not impair adjuvant-associated survival advantages. Together, these data indicate that increased glucose uptake through glucose transporters is not required for increased survival of activated T cells.
