Acetyl cholinesterase (AcChE) was demonstrated by histochemistry in the follicular dendritic cells (FDCs) of the germinal centres of lymph nodes, tonsils, and bowel lymphoid tissue. Its presence in the FDCs was confirmed by double immunostaining for CD21 or DRC-1. AcChE-positive FDCs are concentrated in the inner portion of the light zone of the germinal centre, being absent from the dark zone. In the lymphoid tissue surrounding the germinal centres are AcChE-positive blood vessels; double… CONTINUE READING
