Mechanisms and regulation of lymphocyte migration

Immunol Today. 1989 Jan;10(1):23-8. doi: 10.1016/0167-5699(89)90061-3.

Abstract

Lymphocyte traffic seems to be an essential requirement for an adequate immune response both in lymphoid tissues and local inflammatory sites. In this review, Adrian Duijvestijn and Alf Hamann discuss how selective migration of lymphocytes is directed by lymphocyte-endothelial interactions and what mechanisms may control this.
