Two distinct pools of recirculating T lymphocytes: migratory characteristics of nodal and intestinal T lymphocytes

Abstract

A pronounced asymmetry in the recirculation from blood to lymph of resting small recirculating T lymphocytes is described. When 51Cr-labeled small T-recirculating lymphocytes (TRL) from intestinal lymph were infused intravenously their relative recovery in intestinal lymph was about twice that in nodal lymph. In contrast, the relative recovery in nodal… (More)
