The goal of this review is to connect the information on the regulation of growth and differentiation of non-lymphoid tissues by the immune system and the release/uptake of nucleic acids by living cells (especially by lymphocytes). Nucleic acids are suggested to be the messengers in regulatory information transfer from the immune system to other cells.
