Abstract

The gastroinstestinal mucosa is continously exposed to food-derived antigens, resident microorganisms and invading pathogens. Correct antigen sampling and handling is essential for regulation and maintenance of mucosal immune responses against these factors However, antigen transport through the epithelium, uptake, processing and presentation by specialized cells in vivo are important steps in the initiation of a defined immune response (or tolerance) in the gut.
