Technical advance: in vitro production of distinct dendritic-like antigen-presenting cells from self-renewing hematopoietic stem cells
A novel CD11c(lo)CD11b(hi)MHC-II–CD8α– dendritic-like cell (L-DC) develops in cocultures of bone marrow over splenic stroma. L-DCs are distinct from other DC subsets and have potential importance in spleen for immunity to blood-borne antigens. As production is maintained in cultures for >12 months, L-DC development evidently depends on self-renewing progenitors. To improve this culture system, highly purified HSCs were sorted from bone marrow and used to establish cocultures. Nonadherent cells...[Show more]
