Peyer's patch lymphoid follicles are characterized by a cuboidal epithelium, which has low numbers of mucus-secreting goblet cells, infiltration with clusters of lymphoid cells, and unique antigen-transporting M cells. M cells have short, irregular microvilli similar to undifferentiated crypt epithelial cells, which suggested that M-cell renewal might occur over follicle surfaces. By autoradiography we found that epithelial renewal over follicles only occurs by proliferation in multiple… CONTINUE READING
