The cytological distribution of the pneumococcal polysaccharides, types II and III, was followed in the tissues of the mouse. The most constant and striking concentrations of these polysaccharides were found in the cells of the reticulo-endothelial system, the ordinary capillary endothelium, and fibroblasts throughout the body. In addition, polysaccharide was detected in monocytes and lymphocytes, hepatic cells, cardiac and smooth muscle cells, uterine epithelium, and in steroid-forming cells… 
Studies on antibody production. III. The alum granuloma.
TLDR
The adjuvant effect of the aluminum phosphate is interpreted as due partly to the delay in absorption of antigen from the local site of its injection which results in prolongation of stimulation of cells within the regional lymphatic glands, and partly in the production of a local granuloma which contains antibody-producing plasma cells.
PERSISTENCE OF GROUP A STREPTOCOCCAL CELL WALLS RELATED TO CHRONIC INFLAMMATION OF RABBIT DERMAL CONNECTIVE TISSUE
TLDR
Cell wall antigens persisted in the tissue site considerably longer than morphologically identifiable streptococci, indicating that cell wall fragments are released during dismantling of streptitisci in phagocytic cells.
Die Bedeutung der Plasmazellen als Antikörperbildner∗
TLDR
The theory of the plasmacellular antibody formation is based on clinical and experimental observations and the complicated problems of globulin synthesis in the antibody producing cell are explained in the light of the genetic theory of antibody formation advanced by Ehrich.
Macrophage Uptake, Intracellular Localization, and Degradation of Poly-γ-d-Glutamic Acid, the Capsular Antigen of Bacillus anthracis
TLDR
It is found that PGA binds to and is internalized by J774.2 cells and accumulates in CD71 transferrin receptor-positive endosomes, and degradation of PGA may explain the rapid clearance that is observed in vivo compared to the slow clearance noted with capsular polysaccharides.
Effects of Fibro-histiocytic System Extract on Bacteria
TLDR
The bactericidal power of a unit of volume of the subcutaneous tissue cell bodies was remarkably stronger than that of the spleen, and these cells are presumed to be the main producer of bactericidal substance.
ANTIGENS IN IMMUNITY
TLDR
The tentative conclusion is reached that follicular antigen in a primary follicle encounters natural antibody on the surface of certain antigen-reactive lymphocytes, and the resultant reaction causes blast cell transformation and eventually the genesis of a germinal center.
ANTIGENS IN IMMUNITY. IX. THE ANTIGEN CONTENT OF SINGLE ANTIBODY-FORMING CELLS.
TLDR
Flagellar antigens from S. adelaide bacteria were labelled with carrier-free (125)I so as to achieve a substitution rate of 0.1 to 2.1 radioactive iodine atoms per flagellin molecule and single antibody-forming cells were identified and submitted individually to autoradiography to measure their content of iodine.
ELI 0 RAVIOLA AND
TLDR
Assessment of the permeability of the thymic vessels in young adult mice with ultrastructural tracers of different molecular weights shows that lymphoid cells in the cortex, in contrast with those of the medulla, are protected from circulating macromolecules.
Postnatal development of dendritic reticulum cells and their immune complex trapping ability.
TLDR
The postnatal development of dendritic reticulum cells in the rat popliteal lymph nodes was electron microscopically investigated in relation to the appearance of immune complex trapping capacity, suggesting that the desmosomal junctions play a role as the channel for a transmission of immunological information.
