Biodefense function of omental milky spots through cell adhesion molecules and leukocyte proliferation


To evaluate the immunological functions of the greater omentum in the peritoneal cavity, the localization of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) on mesothelial cells and leukocytes in the omental milky spots were studied in normal and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated mice by means of immunoelectron microscopy. The milky spots featured numerous leukocytes… (More)
