Abstract

Follicular dendritic cells (FDC) have been regarded as antigen-trapping cells playing roles in immune amplification especially in the secondary reponse.4,7,9) However their morphological spectrum has not been enough -clarified since their cytoplasmic extensions are too complicatedly interwoven to observe in banal electron microsopy. The purpose of this report is to analyze their morphological profile and spectrum of human FDC with a monoclonal antibody DRC-l(DAKO)2) specific to FDC and their relatives, in a combination with an isolation technique of FDC according to Tew et al.6)
