Abstract

Interaction between different types of hematopoietic cells is essential for proper functioning of the immune system. For instance, the cytokines produced by antigen-presenting dendritic cells will determine the type of T cell response that is induced. However, hematopoietic cells are also strongly influenced by the surrounding nonhematopoietic cells. The cells that form these microenvironments are collectively called stromal cells. Here, we focus on the stromal cells present within secondary lymphoid organs and discuss their importance for various aspects of the immune system.
