Lymphocyte recirculation is essential for the efficient recognition of antigenic challenge in the organised lymphoid tissues and the periphery. Lymphocyte entry into most organised lymphoid tissues such as the lymph nodes (LN), Peyer’s patches (PP)(1) tonsils, tongue papillae and thymus(2) is inhibitable by trypsin(l,3), apparently involving the interaction of protein receptors on the circulating lymphocytes with determinants on specialized post capillary venular (PCV) endothelial cells (1). This interaction is also involved in the lymphocyte localization in granulomata and rheumatoid joints (chronic inflammatory tissue)(4) but not in spleen, lung and liver(1,3) or the minor traffic in other tissues, none of which is significantly reduced by trypsinisation. It is probable that the lymphocyte receptors and endothelial cell (EC) determinants involved in active entry into different LN types, into PP and into chronic inflammatory tissue are different(1,4).
