Migration Patterns of Dendritic cells in the Mouse
Dendritic cells (DC) in lymphoid organs and related cells in non-lymphoid tissues play a pivotal role in the induction of T lymphocyte responses (reviewed in Austyn, 1987). DC stimulate primary immune responses in culture and in vivo, and trigger allograft rejection. However, their mode of entry to the tissues and subsequent fate, and the significance of apparently mature DC in blood is unclear.
