31). Most of the recirculating cells are T cells and the complete cycle takes about 24 h; some B cells, including long-lived memory B cells, also recirculate. Lymphocyte circulation is strongly influenced by chemokine receptors on the lymphocyte surface that act as homing agents. There are also adhesion molecules directing cells to their respective ligands on high endothelial venules of lymph nodes and mucosal tissue. 8). Lymph node architecture is well adapted to its function (Fig. 17). The lymphatic network, which drains the extravascular spaces in the tissues, is connected to the lymph nodes by lymphatic vessels; these penetrate the lymph node capsule and drain into the peripheral sinus, from which further sinuses branch to enter the lymph node, passing through the cortex to the medulla and hence to the efferent lymphatic vessel.

They rapidly produce many cytokines after stimulation and thus influence diverse immune responses, such augmenting the proliferation of Tregs in an IL-4-dependent manner. They can also promote cell-mediated immunity to tumours and infectious organisms, while paradoxically they can suppress the T cell responses associated with autoimmune disease, graft-versus-host-disease or allograft rejection. The exact mechanisms by which these cells carry out such contrasting functions are not known. Absence of NKT cells in a particular form of primary immunodeficiency known as X-linked lymproliferative disease (XLP) is associated with the development of EBV driven lymphoma, suggesting an important role in responses to this particular virus and to tumours.

The lytic pathway complex binds to the cell membrane and a transmembrane channel is formed. This can be seen by electron microscopy as a hollow, thinwalled cylinder through which salts and water flow, leading to the uptake of water by a cell, swelling and destruction. During the final lytic pathway, complement fragments are broken off. C5a and the activated complex C567 are both potent mediators of inflammation. e. cause histamine release from mast cells with a resulting increase in vascular permeability.
