  • The mammalian immune system implements a remarkably effective set of mechanisms for fighting pathogens 1 . Its main components are haematopoietic immune cells, including myeloid cells that control innate immunity, and lymphoid cells that constitute adaptive immunity 2 . However, immune functions are not unique to haematopoietic cells, and many other cell types display basic mechanisms of pathogen defence 3 – 5 . To advance our understanding of immunology outside the haematopoietic system, here… CONTINUE READING
