T and B Lymphocyte Electron Micrograph

  • Spleen cells labeled to allow a comparison between T and B lymphocytes.
  • the undifferentiated lymphocytes appear similar.

Fig. 9 there is a labeled B lymphocyte on the right and an unlabeled, presumably T1, lymphocyte on the left. See T and B Lymphocytes 2 TEM for opposite labeling. Note the resemblance between both cell types (as opposed to the contrast between the two lymphcytes shown in Fig. 7) and the scarcity of organelles in T1 cells.

Labeling in Fig. 9 is done with aMBLA

X 11,500.

Scale bar 1 micron (Stain - Osmium)
