ABSTRACT

“Allergy” cells embrace dendritic cells to transfer antigens.

No MeSH data available.


FOCAL POINT  (Left to right) Diane Lidke, Alessandra Cambi, Amanda Carroll-Portillo, and colleagues showed that mast cells connect to dendritic cells before delivering antigens that can induce a response from T cells. When inactivated mast cells (the smaller cells in the top row) make contact with a dendritic cell, their interaction lasts only a few seconds. In contrast, an activated mast cell (the green cell in the bottom row) can remain attached to a dendritic cell for several minutes.AUTHOR PHOTOS COURTESY OF DIANE LIDKE (LEFT) AND SAM PORTILLO (CENTER)
