A central role for tissue-resident dendritic cells in innate responses.

Abstract

In the past 20 years, dendritic cells (DCs) have been investigated mainly with regard to antigen-specific immune responses and acquired immunity. More recently, new data have indicated a novel and fundamental role for DCs in innate immunity, which is shown by the ability of DCs to induce natural killer (NK) cell activation. In mice, the molecular mechanism… (More)
