Effective viral immunity depends on the activation of T cells by professional antigen presenting cells, such as dendritic cells (DC). The remarkable heterogeneity of the DC network allows the immune system to respond specifically to various infection strategies by different viruses. As a consequence, DC-T cell interactions resulting in optimal virus… CONTINUE READING
