Figure 10

Proposed schematic representation of the interrelationship of pulmonary myeloid dendritic cell subsets assessed by flowcytometry. Pulmonary langerin positive Langerhans-type dendritic cells (LDC) are partially express CD1a and are closely related to BDCA-1 positive dendritic cells. These cells are separated from the interstitial type dendritic cells (intDC), which are identified by DC-SIGN and the myeloid dendritic cell type 2 (mDC2), identified by BDCA-3 high expression. Dimensions of the Venn-diagrams are not proportional to the absolute size of the different pulmonary DC subsets.
