Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

Abstract

Segerer et al. report the expression and localization of macrophage and dendritic-cell markers in human renal biopsies and indicate that both cell types express CD68, findings that resonate with murine studies. The functional and phenotypic distinction between macrophages and dendritic cells is discussed.
