Is there MHC I on macrophage?

  1. Hi all,

    I was just wondering, are there MHC I molecules on the surface of a macrophage? According to my textbook, this is the rule:

    All nucleated cells have MHC I
    Dendritic cells, macrophages and B cells have MHC II

    Can macrophage be considered as a nucleated cell? If so, does that mean a macrophage has both MHC I and II molecules on its surface?

    Many thanks,
    Jay

    Yes, macrophages (and other Antigen Presenting Cells) have MHC I in addition to MHC II.
