Differentiation of hematopoietic progenitors to dendritic cells (DCs) is a complex, poorly understood process regulated by cytokines, colony-stimulating factors, growth factor receptors, and transcription factors. However, nutritional factors may play an important role. Vitamin A is essential for proper immune function and is implicated in the development… CONTINUE READING
