Accession:MP:0004242 term browser browse the term
Definition:any structural anomaly of phagocytic dendritic cells that are morphologically similar to plasma cells, but do not express B lineage markers, and produce large amounts of alpha/beta interferons (IFN-/) in response to viral and bacterial stimuli; plasmacytoid dendritic cells are found in the thymic medulla and lymph node T cell areas and are responsible for immune tolerance
Synonyms:exact_synonym: abnormal DC2;   abnormal T-associated plasma cells;   abnormal lymphoid dendritic cell;   abnormal pDC;   abnormal plasmacytoid T cell;   abnormal plasmacytoid monocytes
