Isolation of Cells from Human Intestinal Tissue
Authors:  Heli Uronen-Hansson, Emma Persson, Petra Nilsson and William Agace, date: 04/05/2014, view: 9345, Q&A: 0
The intestinal lamina propria contains a dense network of T cells, dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages, which play an important role in local innate and adaptive immune responses. We have recently identified distinct subsets of DCs (Persson et al. ...
