It has been shown previously that Flemming’s tingible bodies in germinal centers could be a result of cell death occurring immediately prior to or at germinoblast mitosis [1]. This mode of nuclear pyknosis appears to be quite different from that in somatic tissues, in which the functional cells resulting from differentiation are end cells in terms of proliferative capacity. The present work aims at obtaining additional information on this phenomenon, using DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis precursors.
