Dendritic cells

Classical Dendritic cells (cDC) are migratory myeloid cells with an unrivalled potential to stimulate naïve T cells. Adoptive transfer experiments have established that cDC are derived from dedicated DC precursors which differentiate in tissue context into distinct DC subsets, including XCR1+ (CD8a+) cDC and CD11b+ DC. Functional differences between these subsets remain incompletely understood, as is their relation to monocyte-derived DC that complement the cDC compartment during inflammation.
