Follicular dendritic cells (FDC) are involved in the presentation of native Ags to B cells during the secondary immune response. Some authors consider FDC to be hemopoietic cells, whereas others believe them to be mesenchymal cells. The low proportion of FDC in the lymphoid follicle, together with technical difficulties in their isolation, make these cells difficult to study. We show that Fibroblast Medium can be used successfully to isolate and maintain FDC lines. In this culture medium, we… CONTINUE READING
