Phenotypic Changes in Cultured Rat Dendritic Cells: Expression of IL-2 Receptor, Thy-1 and Other Antigens

  • G. G. MacPherson
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 237)


The lymphoid dendritic cell (DC) is thought, mainly as a result of ‘in vitro’ studies, to play a central role in the initiation of. immune responses, particularly in the activation of resting T lymphocytes (1). However, despite considerable investigation, relatively little is known of the ‘in vivo’ physiology and life history of the DC.
