Cells present in the intestinal lymph of rats were obtained in large numbers by removing the mesenteric, portal and caecal lymph nodes and cannulating the thoracic duct 6 weeks later. About 1% of the cells present in the thoracic duct lymph of these mesenteric lymphadenectomized rats had striking dendritic morphology, were strongly Ia+ but labelled weakly with monoclonal antibodies that recognize rat B or T cells. It was found that intestinal lymph was highly enriched for cells that stimulate...Expand abstract
