Extramedullary hematopoiesis leading to the production of a novel antigen-presenting cell type in murine spleen

Hinton, Rebecca; O'Neill, Helen


The concept of extramedullary hematopoiesis for production of organ-specific antigen presenting cells has importance in immunity in terms of the compartmentalisation of the immune response in different tissue sites. A new and distinct dendritic-like antigen presenting cell subtype is described which is dependent on the spleen microenvironment for development. Cells arise by a unique developmental pathway distinct from other dendritic cells (DC). In particular, a self-renewing progenitor of...[Show more]
