Plate 9.167 Lymphocytes

Human, Helly's fluid, H. & E., 612 x.

Lymphocyte nuclei: Densely staining, they fill most of the cell. The cytoplasm is not seen at this magnification but can be seen in Plate 53.

Mitotic cell division: Anaphase. Medium-sized and large lymphocytes are capable of multiplication by mitosis. Anaphase is a period in the continuous process of cell division in which the replicated chromosomes separate and are drawn toward the spindle poles prior to cytoplasmic division. For an illustration of the complete mitotic cycle and human chromosomes at high magnification see Plates 3 and 4.
