The intercellular transfer of many molecules, including the major histocompatibility complexes (MHC), both class I and II, costimulatory and adhesion molecules, extracellular matrix organization molecules as well as chemokine, viral and complement receptors, has been observed between cells of the immune system. In this review, we aim to summarize the findings of a large body of work, highlight the molecules transferred and how this is achieved, as well as the cells capable of acquiring… CONTINUE READING
