  5. 5. Langerhans cells in oral mucosa and skin. A functional and morphological study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Odontology

    Author : Bengt Hasséus; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2002]

    Abstract : Langerhans cells (LC) are a subpopulation of dendritic cells residing in skin and mucosal epi-thelium. LC capture antigens in the periphery and following migration to regional lymph nodes present peptides to T cells. LCs have a central role in initiating a T cell mediated immune re-sponse, both in health and disease. READ MORE
