Dendritic cells are antigen presenting cells with a unique ability to induce primary immune response. Dendritic cells are a special type of leukocytes which are able to alter the immune system for the presence of infections. Dendritic cells are derived from bone marrow progenitors and circulate in the blood as immature precursors prior to migration into peripheral tissues. Dendritic cells capture and transfer information from the outside world to the cells of the adaptive immune system. Dendritic cells are not only critical for the induction of primary immune responses, but may also be important for the induction of immunological tolerance,as well as for the regulation of the type of T cell -mediated immune response.
