Germinal Centers and Their Role in Immune Responses

Abstract

It has been suggested that germinal centers are involved in the formation of lymphocytes mediating immunological memory (115,117, 119,120,128,129,131). In this presentation we review the evidence which links the two and discuss mechanisms of cell interaction which might lead to germinal center and memory cell formation.
