Regulation of dendritic cell recruitment by chemokines.

Abstract

Dendritic cells (DC) are a heterogeneous family of cells that function as sentinels of the immune system. This article summarizes observations suggesting that inflammatory chemokines secreted at the site of pathogen invasion determine the DC subset recruited and influence the class of the immune response initiated. Langerhans cells are selectively recruited… (More)
