Dendritic cells, computer illustration. Dendritic cells, a type of white blood cell, are a type of antigen presenting cell (APC) and are found in the body's tissues. They play a role in the body's immune system by recognising and phagocytosing (engulfing and destroying) pathogens. They then present the digested parts (antigens) of the phagocytosed pathogens to other immune system cells. The long projections seen on the cells' surface help them to move around the body.
