Adherence of Porcine Peyer’s Patch, Peripheral Blood and Lymph Node Lymphocytes to Peyer’s Patch Lamina Propria
A vital element of the immune system is the ability of mature lymphocytes to circulate between blood and lymphoid organs in a continuous fashion. This recirculation not only allows detection and immune response to antigen, but also the communication of lymphocytes with cells at other sites within the body. There appear to be at least two separate lymphocyte recirculation patterns, one specific for mucosal tissue and the other for peripheral lymph node.1,2,3 More recently a third migratory pathway specific for inflamed synovium has been suggested.4,5
