  • The involution of the bursa of Fabricius in White Leghorn chickens and the transport of colloidal carbon in the involuting bursa were studied on light microscopy. In chickens, from newly hatched to 23.5 weeks of age, the bursa was weighed, its histology was described, and the mitoses in the cortical and medullary compartments of the lymphoid follicles were counted. Decrease in bursal weight and in the number of mitoses were observed between 10 and 16 weeks of age. During week 17.5, the follicle… CONTINUE READING
