Abstract

We carried out an immunohistochemical study on mesenteric guinea pig lymph nodes, from the 10th day prepartum till the 26th day postpartum, to assess the role of fibronectin in their organization during development. This glycoprotein is diffusely distributed in embryonic lymph nodes, suggesting a primer function during organogenesis. After birth, in fact, it is less widespread and is mainly localized around sinuses and vessels. Our data, supporting the important role of this glycoprotein during lymph node organization, are in agreement with the results obtained in other tissues and organs.
