Adipose Dendritic Cells Come Out of Hiding

Cell Metab. 2018 Mar 6;27(3):485-486. doi: 10.1016/j.cmet.2018.02.014.


In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Macdougall et al. (2018) identify two subsets of conventional dendritic cells in visceral adipose tissue and demonstrate that these subsets engage distinct adipocyte-associated signaling pathways to drive their tolerogenic phenotypes in the lean state.
