Caption: An illustration of an islet of Langerhans (in blue) in the pancreas. The capillary network is in red; acinar cells are in pinkish-orange; interlobular ducts are in green. Langerhans' cells are located in all layers of the epidermis but are most easily seen in the prickle cell layer. They recognize antigens and are an important component of the immune system. Ultrastructurally, Langerhans' cells have an irregular clefted nucleus and are devoid of tonofilaments. They have prominent mitochondria, lysosomes and rough endoplasmic reticulum.
