The most common division of dendritic cells is myeloid versus plasmacytoid. The myeloid dendritic cells are developed from myeloid precursors and are most similar to monocytes. They are made up of at least two subsets: 1. the more common mDC-1, which is a major stimulator of T cells and 2. the extremely rare mDC-2, which may have a function in fighting wound infection. They secrete IL-12. (BRENDA Tissue and Enzyme Source Ontology, BTO_0004721)
