Marginal Zone B Cells in Neonatal Rats Express Intermediate Levels of CD90 (Thy-1)

Abstract

Here we show that marginal zone (MZ)-B cells in rats can already be detected in neonatal spleen from two days after birth. At this time point, morphologically distinct MZs are not present yet and the vast majority of B cells in spleen are located in a concentric area surrounding the T cell zones (PALS). Before MZs are obviously detectable in spleen (14 days… (More)
