The lamina propria contains both B and T cells. The majority of T cells express CD4 and TCRαβ1. , 1991). , 1991; see Chapter 13). TCRαβ2ϩ cells are rarely evident in the small intestine but their relative frequency is higher in the CT. IgMϩ, IgAϩ and IgYϩ plasma cells are found in the villi with a predominance of IgA-producing cells in the lamina propria. IgMϩ and IgYϩ plasma cells are mostly located between the crypts, whereas IgAϩ plasma cells are often scattered from the crypts to the villi tips.

15 THYMUS fully and partially encapsulated. Although the cell populations of fully and partially encapsulated GC do not differ cytologically, there is speculation that these represent functionally different structures (Oláh and Glick, 1979). Alternatively, they could represent different stages of GC development (Jeurissen and Janse, 1994). Mature GC are surrounded by a capsule of connective tissue and completely lack blood vessels. They are located close to T cell areas adjacent to arteries and arterioles.

22 STRUCTURE OF THE AVIAN LYMPHOID SYSTEM substance, which is released into the bursal lumen lubricating the surface of the folds. The columnar epithelium is pseudostratified, since there is a layer of cuboidal basal cells with densely stained cytoplasm. The function is not known. Perhaps the cuboidal cells are predestined for the IFE, since the surface epithelium does not proliferate and no epithelial stem cell has been identified. 4(a)). It is generally accepted that the medulla is of entodermal origin, and so has similar origins to the thymic medulla.
