  • spleen
  • In addition to the lymph nodes, the lymphatic system includes the spleen, which filters worn-out red blood cells and produces lymphocytes, and bone marrow, which is the spongy tissue inside the cavities of bones that manufactures blood cells. (rarediseases.org)
  • At 1 1 2 , 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after reconstitution, the bone marrow cells were repeatedly collected from each mouse under light anesthesia and the number of colony-forming unit-spleen (CFU-S), spleen repopulating ability (SRA), and the integration of human ADA gene were studied in CFU-S-derived colonies by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern blot hybridization analyses.

  • lymphocytes
  • Lymph accumulates in the tiny spaces between tissue cells and contains proteins, fats, and certain white blood cells known as lymphocytes. (rarediseases.org)
  • There are two main types of lymphocytes: B-lymphocytes (B-cells), which may produce specific antibodies to "neutralize" certain invading microorganisms, and T-lymphocytes (T-cells), which may directly destroy microorganisms or assist in the activities of other lymphocytes. (rarediseases.org)
