Lymph Node Macrophage Heterogeneity: A Subpopulation Fails to Express Activation Phenotype
There is evidence to suggest that tissue-specific macrophages may have different characteristics to the peritoneal macrophage population which has been the most extensively studied [ 1–3 ].These differences may be related to specialised functions of the macrophages in the tissues. The lymph node macrophage population was studied with the objective of shedding light on the functions of this population in lymph node function.
