Ito cells, stellate cells, and myofibroblasts: new actors in antigen presentation

Immunity. 2007 Jan;26(1):9-10. doi: 10.1016/j.immuni.2007.01.001.

Abstract

Winau et al. provide convincing evidence that liver stellate cells can be antigen-presenting cells. This paper raises the following question: what are the roles and importance of diverse antigen-presenting cells in different organs?
