Physical Interaction Between Dendritic Cells and Lymphocytes is not LFA-1 Mediated
Dendritic cells from spleen, lymph nodes and other organs have been found to represent the most efficient accessory cell population for the induction of a primary immune response. Interaction with lymphocytes is thought to take place via direct cell-cell contact and indeed a striking property of dendritic cells is their ability to form clusters with lymphocytes containing that T-cell fraction becoming activated subsequently (1).
