The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of intestinal material on the maturing of B lymphocytes in the bursa of Fabricius and on the antibody response to SRBC. Experiments were carried out on chicks whose burso-cloacal stalk had been ligated at hatching, in order to avoid any contact between the bursal tissues and intestinal material. Chicks subjected to a sham operation, or not operated at all, were used as controls. Results obtained by immunoperoxidase test, using an anti… CONTINUE READING
