Abstract

Thin sections of lymph nodes from 14 rats were examined by phase contrast microscopy as regards direction of lymphocytes with amoeboid movement configuration (AMC) relative to the basement membrane of post-capillary high-endothelium venules (HE-venules). Out of 118 lymphocytes with AMC, 82 appeared to be on their way into the venule from the lymph node parenchyma. This observation suggests that the lymphocyte traffic over the HE-venules is bi-directional, with the main migratory stream of lymphocytes from the lymph node parenchyma into the post-capillary venules.
