A new method for the visualization of the epidermal Langerhans cell and its application on normal and allergic skin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When skin specimens are exposed in vitro to L-dopa and catecholamines these substances accumulate in the Langerhans cells where they can be visualized with the histofluorescence method of Falck and Hillarp. Some methodological aspects are discussed and a preliminary study of Langerhans cells in contact allergy is reported.
