Innervation of Renal Hemolymph Nodes in Rats: Fluorescence Histochemical Study

Maria Sirotakova, Monika Kocisova and Katarina Schmidtova

Abstract:
In the renal hemolymph node, adrenergic nerves supply essentially the same structural and functional parts of the organ as in the other lymph nodes. Their total number is, however, pronouncedly higher in this organ, especially locally in the areas of maximal concentration of erythrophages and siderophages. Adrenergic nerve fibres enter these nodes in a common bundle with arteries, above all, hilus, but sporadically also with penetration of fibrous capsule on the other sites of the organ surface. In conclusion, the authors discuss a working hypothesis of the potential biological importance of the renal hemolymph node as the organ, which not only eliminates erythrocytes from an affluent lymph, but at the same time, it controls a defensive immune reaction so not to arise any phenomena of autoaggression against autologous red blood cells.
