The CD1 (T6) antigen is a highly specific marker for human Langerhans cells (LC). Previous studies have demonstrated that crude preparations containing murine interleukin-1 (IL-1) or a human epithelial cell-derived IL-1 inhibitor (ILS) modulate CD1 expression by LC in organ culture. This study examined the effect of organ-culture derived human IL-1… CONTINUE READING
