Emerging Immune Functions of Non-hematopoietic Stromal Cells
by Christopher G Mueller (ed.)
Publisher: Frontiers Media SA 2014
Number of pages: 162
The development and function of the immune system is dependent on interactions between haematopoietic cells and non-hematopoietic stromal cells. The non-hematopoietic stromal cells create the microenvironment in which the immune system operates, providing an architectural landscape for hematopoietic cell-cell interactions and molecular cues governing haematopoietic cell positioning, growth and survival.
