Single cell suspensions of lymphocytes derived from the spleen and thoracic duct of rats were labelled with the fluorochrome acridine orange, proved to be viable by tissue culture, and injected into the left ventricle of isogenic rats. No evidence for recirculation of lymphocytes from blood to thoracic duct lymph within a three hour cycle was obtained. The injected cells whether derived from the spleen or thoracic duct homed only to the tissues of the lymphomyeloid complex.
