Abstract
Phytohaemagglutinin (PHA)-activated lymphocytes differentiated into nuclear vlimata (NVs) in vitro. Lymphocyte attachment was followed by formation and extrusion of cytoplasmic vesicles. nuclear elongation and fragmentation into NVs. NVs and cytoplasmic vesicles were detached and organized into large cell nodules in suspension. Immunocytochemistry showed that T-lymphocytes differentiated mainly to NVs while B-lymphocytes to buds. During differentiation there was a loss or gain of T-antigenicity by either mother or daughter cell. Cytogenetic analysis by chromosomal spreading and in situ techniques showed that NVs do carry chromosomes of hypodiploid or hypohaploid...
