Fascin-positive dendritic cells and fibroblastic reticulum cells build a framework of T-cell areas in lymph nodes


Fascin, a 55-kDa actin-bundling protein, and α-smooth muscle actin (ASMA) were immunohistochemically examined in murine normal and stimulated lymph nodes. In specific pathogen-free young female mice, a few fascin-positive cells (FPCs) were located in the sinus and surrounding tissues, but ASMA-positive cells were undetectable. Following a subcutaneous… (More)
