Teleost fish, as a whole, display a lower level of organization of the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) than mammals; however, lymphocytes, antigen-presenting cells (APCs) and other innate immune cells are diffusely organized along the intestinal tract which is suggestive of both innate and adaptive system readiness to respond to pathogens that infiltrate the mucosal barrier defences. The lack of any comprehensive data regarding the functional role of dendritic cells (DCs) in the gut mucosa of teleost fish may suggest that the predominant APC that primes adaptive responses is the macrophage cell; however, DCs are likely to exist as the DC differentiation marker CD83 has been characterized in teleost and elasmobranch fish (Ohta et al.
