Follicular dendritic cells (FDC) are uniquely characterized by the ability to trap immune complexes. In a previous report, it was shown that functional FDC with the capacity to trap immune complexes via complement receptor emerged in the splenic follicle after transferring syngeneic lymphocytes into the severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mouse. In the present report, we have investigated whether FDC are derived from haematopoietic cells or surrounding stromal components, by transferring… CONTINUE READING
