The in situ identification of T cells has been difficult and restricted to frozen tissue samples of a limited range of species. In this study, we demonstrate that an antiserum recognizing a phylogenetically conserved part of the CD3∈ cytoplasmic tail detects T cells of many avian and mammalian species in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections. This antiserum enables the morphological characterization of normal and pathological lymphoid tissues and lymphoid infiltrations in experimental work and in animal disease.
