For human LC or epidermal dendritic cells, check out the combo HLA-DR+ CD1a+
E-cadherin+ CCR6+ while FactorXIIIa neg. CD14 neg. in contrast to dermal DC
(and also CD3 neg. CD19 neg. CD16/56 neg.). S100 is a marker often used in
immunohistochemistry of LC histiocytosis, but I don't know if it's been
tried on Flow.
Mice LC are also Lin- and have relatively abundant MHCII, plus also surface
CD11c, F4/80 and E-cadherin but no CD1a on murine DC.
