  • The interaction between polystyrene microspheres and the follicle-associated epithelium of rabbit Peyer's patches has been examined. Microspheres bind selectively to, and are transcytosed by, membranous or microfold (M) cells within the follicle-associated epithelium. M cells are able to transport, in 45 min, approximately 105 microspheres of 0.46 μm diameter across the epithelium overlying each lymphoid follicle dome of rabbit Peyer's patches. The high capacity of M cells for particulate… CONTINUE READING
