Over the last several years considerable evidence has accumulated indicating that cells with a dendritic morphology play important roles in a variety of immune functions. A list of the immunologically relevant dendritic-type cells (D cells) and the immune functions associated with each is presented in Table 1. As indicated in the footnotes in this table, a number of names have been used to describe and identify different D cells. The names and abbreviations used in the body of this table have been tentatively agreed upon by the RES committee on nomenclature.
