Enumeration of APCs derived from blood, spleen, and BM by cell culture. A: Fluorescence microscopy revealing the spindle-shaped APCs (phase contrast image), lectin-bound (green), DiI-ac-LDL uptake (red), and dual-stained APCs (yellow; magnification ×100). B: Numbers of peripheral blood-, spleen- and BM-derived cultured APCs from uninjured mice are expressed as the percentage of cells derived from WT mice (P < 0.05; n = 6 mice per group). Data are presented as mean and SEM. (A high-quality digital representation of this figure is available in the online issue.)
