Follicular dendritic cell - SEM

This scanning electron micrograph. This is an isolated Follicular Dendritic Cell cultured on collagen. It shows a cell body and numerous dendritic cell processes interdigitating with one another and with dendrites of adjacent FDCs to form a network. This network traps antigen in the form of immune complexes and helps initiate an antibody response by B cells.
