However, in most cases, not all T cells are deleted but remain in the periphery in an anergic state, suggesting that apoptosis only occurs until the levels of autoreactive T cells are such that they can be controlled by the process of anergy (16). In addition to these direct-acting mechanisms, activation of other cells can also aid peripheral tolerance. The major cells involved in this process are DCs and T regs. DCs have been proposed to aid tolerance by two mechanisms. The first hypothesizes that DCs have receptors that recognize pathogen-associated molecules and initiate an immune response upon encountering such a molecule (24,25).
