A phenotypically similar DC has recently been discovered as a minor population in the murine dermis. In epidermis, LCs function as sentinel antigen-presenting cells that can capture invading viruses such as herpes simplex virus (HSV), varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
