The intestine is under perpetual challenge from both pathogens and essential nutrients, yet the mucosal immune system is able to discriminate effectively between harmful and innocuous Ags. It is likely that this selective immunoregulation is dependent on the nature of the APC at sites where gut Ags are processed and presented. Dendritic cells (DC) are considered the most potent of APC and are renowned for their immunostimulatory role in the initiation of immune responses. To investigate the… CONTINUE READING
