Abstract:

Changes in the histochemical reactivity and localization of beta-D- galactosidase and beta-D-glucuronidase were correlated with the morphologic differentiation of lymphoid tissues in neonatal rats. The thymus had a relatively mature histologic structure by 7 to 10 days of age, and maturation in the neonatal spleen and intestinal lymphoid tissue followed in that order.
