Previous immunohistochemical observations using the monoclonal antibody (XL-1) which recognizes all types of leukocytes in Xenopus laevis revealed the occurrence of XL-1+ cells in the mesenchyme throughout the early larval body, before the appearance of any lymphocytes. The present experiments were performed to determine whether these leukocytes originate, like lymphocytes and red blood cells (RBCs), in the ventral blood islands (VBI) or the dorsolateral plate (DLP).
