Macrophages and dendritic cells express tight junction proteins and exchange particles in an in vitro model of the human airway wall.

Abstract

The human airway epithelium serves as structural and functional barrier against inhaled particulate antigen. Previously, we demonstrated in an in vitro epithelial barrier model that monocyte derived dendritic cells (MDDC) and monocyte derived macrophages (MDM) take up particulate antigen by building a trans-epithelial interacting network. Although the… (More)
