The morphological and phenotypical features of the class II molecule (HLA-DR) expressing cells in human dental pulps were compared with those of previously characterized perivascular dendritic cells in the dermis. We have further investigated how these pulpal cells are structurally related to the vascular system. Double-immunofluorescence staining revealed that a substantial portion of the pulpal HLA-DR expressing cells also expressed factor XIIIa, a marker for dendritic cells. The cells… CONTINUE READING
