A cells with branching processes that are (depending on their functions) divided in two groups: 1. Follicular dendritic cells, located in germinal centres, near dividing B-cells. They trap antigen-antibody complexes using processes on the surface of the cell. Associated with the production of B-memory cells. 2. Cells with dendritic morphology, located in the thymus-dependent areas of lymph nodes and the spleen. Also known as interdigitating cells. Similar type of cells, known as Langerhans cells, are located in the skin. Dendritic cells of this kind are not phagocytic, they belong to group of antigen-presenting immune cells which stimulate activity of T-lymphocytes.
