Proliferative Responses of Tilapia T-Like Lymphocytes to Stimulation by Concanavalin A|
Agbede S.A; Adedeji O.B and Adeyemo O.K.
Peripheral blood lymphocytes were cultured in vitro in the presence of a mitogen; Concanavalin A (Con A), this resulted into a process described as lymphocyte transformation. The morphological changes in the cells were studied using phase contrast and electron microscopes. The results presented corroborated the existence of lymphocyte heterogeneity in tilapias.
