    Transcript
    In order to respond to an infection, lymphocytes need to become activated. So we’re going to look at lymphocyte activation. The lymphoid tissues can be divided into primary lymphoid tissues where the lymphocytes develop and secondary lymphoid tissues where they become activated. Hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow give rise to the B-lymphocytes within the bone marrow itself, whereas those cells that are going to become T-lymphocytes travel to the thymus. The B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes leave the primary lymphoid tissues once they reach maturity and travel to the secondary lymphoid tissues which are the lymph nodes, the spleen and the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue or MALT....
