...ens and present these to T cells for review in the lymph nodes. It is a demanding job. "Just 10 dendritic cells can show viral antigens to over a million T cells in a day," says Dr. Dustin. Once a T cell's antigen receptor finds an antigen match, the T cell forms an immunological synapse with a dendritic...
