The epidermal indeterminate cell- a special cell type?

Andersson, Anders; Sjöborg, Steinar; Elofsson, Rolf LU and Falck, Bengt LU (1981) In Acta Dermatovenerologica Supplement 99. p.41-48
Abstract
Electron microscopy of normal human epidermis
comprising very large series of sections in combination with
tilting of the sections has revealed that all "indeterminate
cells" carry the specific markers of either melanocytes or
Langerhans cells. The term "indeterminate cells" can thus
be abandoned. In addition, it is suggested that an epidermal
dendritic cell lacking specific markers in the section under
observation can be characterized by the amount and distribution
pattern of its microfilaments, an additional criterion
being that the melanocytes carry a ciliunu
