Results of pancytokeratin staining revealed abundant brown antigen binding in 80% of the cytoplasm of the reticular cells; most lymphoid cells showed detectable antigen in the cytoplasm by using CD3 antibodies (Figs IE and F).
(c) In the lymph node cortex, ATX is expressed by fibroblastic reticular cells and generates LPA locally.
Overall, these data indicate that conservation exists between human and planarian cytokine-like molecules that could be secreted by reticular cells. These data also suggest a link between cytokine-like activity and infertility in planarians.
Robust evidence defines a role for fibroblastic reticular cells (FRCs) in preventing T cells from acquiring effector functions within lymph nodes, and deleting T cells that show self-reactivity.
At 16 weeks clear cortico-medullary differentiation, interlobular septa with blood vessels and aggregations of small eosin stained masses of epithelial reticular cells indicating early stage in the formation of Hassalls's corpuscles were observed (Fig.
Mice getting fibroblastic reticular cells were much more likely than others to survive sepsis--a finding that brightens prospects for developing an effective treatment for the condition.

Myerson et al8 studied widespread presence of histologically occult CMV in situ hybridization (ISH) in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections and detected occult infection in normal appearing cells like cardiac myocytes, hepatocytes, spleen, lymph node reticular cells, endometrial stromal, glandular cells, breast stromal cells, cells of renal glomerulus, tubule and interstitium, adrenal cortex and medulla, fallopian tube submucosa, myometrium and anterior pituitary.
