The cell biology of antigen presentation in dendritic cells.

Abstract

Dendritic cells are the most efficient antigen-presenting cells. They take up antigens and pathogens, generate MHC-peptide complexes, migrate from the sites of antigen acquisition to secondary lymphoid organs and, finally, they physically interact with and stimulate T lymphocytes. Indeed, dendritic cells are the only antigen-presenting cells that induce the… (More)
