Abstract

Pluripotential stem cells appear to require discrete microenvironmental factors to differentiate along a particular developmental pathway. In the chicken, the avian bursa of Fabricius provides a complex collection of cells and factors (1), which enable blood borne precursor cells to differentiate into functional B-lymphocytes (2). The exact nature of the stromal components affecting B-cell differentiation, however, remains poorly defined.
