  • The percentage ± SEM of each subset among MHCII+ (epidermis and dermis) or MHCIIhigh CD11cinter-to-high (CLN) cells were calculated from at least six independent experiments. Upward and downward pointing arrows indicate markers that were up-regulated or down-regulated, respectively, upon migration to CLNs. Bim, bimodal.
