A lymph-carried antigen is retained preferentially in those areas of the subcapsular sinus of a lymph node overlying the extrafollicular zone of the peripheral cortex. There, it becomes associated with the reticular fibers crossing these particular sinus areas. We wondered whether the antigen thereafter diffuses along the extensions of these fibers which form a peculiar network in the “cortical pathways of migration of circulating lymphocytes” (CPMCL), leading to the different cell populations… CONTINUE READING
