Abstract

Dendritic cells (DC) play a fundamental role in initiating and orchestrating T cell-mediated immune responses. Skin DC, including epidermal Langerhans cells, are one of the most extensively investigated models for studying DC functions, and they are implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous diseases such as allergic contact dermatitis to haptens and atopic dermatitis.
