The present work studied the little known process of lymphoid cell colonization of neonatal lymph nodes, while considering the nodal site of entry of circulating lymphoid cells and the either random or antigen-specific character of the process. Tissue sections of a mesenteric, cervical and popliteal node from each of 57 rats, aged 4 hours to 3 weeks, were analysed. Observations bear on the relative importance of the implication of the subcapsular sinus versus venules of nodes, and the… CONTINUE READING
