Analysis of the morphological and immunocytological characteristics of the germinal center cells in vivo gives a clue to the question of what germinal centers really do. In a previous work (1), the relationship of germinal centers to the possession of B-cell surface characteristics (SIg, Fc receptor & C3 receptor) and the functional differentiation of the germinal center cells were investigated using human tonsils.
