What is the frequency of dendritic cell (DC) subsets in mouse spleen?

The frequency of dendritic cells (DCs) and DC subsets varies among different mouse strains.

In BALB/c mice, the approximate DC frequencies in the spleen are as follows:

  • plasmacytoid DCs: 1% 
  • CD4+ DCs: 0.8–1.0% 
  • CD8+ DCs: 0.4–0.5%
