Professional Antigen-Presenting Cell Types

CELLS-HGS1KP

Virtually all nucleated cells in the body have the ability to present antigens to T cells via MHC I molecules. However, only a subset of these cell types has the ability to present antigens to T cells via MHC II molecules, as well. These specialized cells are called professional antigen-presenting cells (pAPCs).

Which one of the following cell types is NOT a professional antigen-presenting cell?

A

Macrophages.

B

B cells.

C

T cells.

D

Dendritic cells.
