Abstract

The gut-associated lymphoid tissue consists of intraepithelial and lamina propria lymphocytes and organized lymphoid tissue, the Peyer’s patches (PP). In pigs there are two types of PP, discrete ones in the jejunum (jejPP) and a continuous PP in the ileum (ilPP). Their role in the pig’s lymphoid system is not known: probably antigen from the gut lumen crossing the epithelium of the PP stimulates their lymphocytopoiesis.
