Dendritic Cell Marker Products



Dendritic cells are potent antigen presenting cells that possess the ability to stimulate naive T cells. They are critical for the induction of T cell responses resulting in cell mediated immunity. Within different tissues, dendritic cells differentiate and become active in the taking up and processing of antigens, and their subsequent presentation on the cell surface linked to major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules. Upon appropriate stimulation, dendritic cells undergo further maturation and migrate to secondary lymphoid tissues where they present Ag to T cells and induce an immune response.
