Histological observations suggested that in the spleen, blood-borne Listeria monocytogenes bacteria were preferentially ingested by two morphologically distinct mononuclear phagocyte populations present in the marginal zone of the white pulp. The morphologies of these phagocytes corresponded to those of marginal zone macrophages or marginal zone dendritic cells. Moreover, during the first day of infection, the same phagocytes containing listeria apparently translocated from the marginal zone… CONTINUE READING
