Immunophenotyping of human dendritic cell population

News & innovations

Dendritic cells (DCs) play an important role in innate and acquired immunity. They are the antigen-presenting cells that prime naive T cells and elicit memory T cell responses to foreign antigens.  DC subsets can be classified into three types. These are plasmacytoid DC (pDC), myeloid/conventional DC1 (cDC1) and myeloid/conventional DC2 (cDC2). This application note describes […]

Delineation of functional Treg subsets using cell surface marker expression

News & innovations, Training and education

Regulatory T cells or Tregs are CD4 T cells that are essential for maintaining peripheral tolerance, preventing autoimmunity and limiting chronic inflammatory diseases. Naturally occurring Tregs were first characterized within the CD4+CD25+ T cell populations. Tregs express the transcription factor Foxp3, which is essential for their function. Over the years, specific Treg subsets have been […]
