J A Hunter, D J Fairley, G C Priestley, H A Cubie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Langerhans cells were identified with the electron microscope in the epidermis of six athymic nu/nu mice. Their origin in the thymus is ruled out and their functional dependence on either the thymus or T lymphocytes seems improbable.
