Lymphocytes have receptors for antigen and confer specificity on an immune response. Lymphocytes express receptors with varying affinity for the antigen in question. Langerhans Cells are present in the skin and process efficiently antigen but cannot present it to T cells. Langerhans cells have been shown to pick up antigen in skin and carry it via afferent lymphatic vessels to lymph nodes. Recognises an antigen expressed by Langerhans cells, intermediate dendritic cells and interdigitating cells in T cell areas of rat lymphoid organs. Monocytes and macrophages in various organs and tissues are also stained.
