  • a DC were purified and sorted from spleen and then incubated for 1 h at 37°C in glass-slide chambers. The proportion of adherent cells was determined under phase-contrast microscopy, scoring at least 100 DC per slide. Values represent the mean ± range of pooled data from two experiments, with two slide chambers per population per experiment.
