@Andrew
You're same with me...usually, when it comes to the new topic of bio, I always wanna know about it even though only some of the major topics...but, when it comes to the specific one (the 1 that I didn't get it when I was in school), it makes me confused n I need someone to explain me directly... :lol:

Spleen?? I think it's located in our lymph... :roll:
Hey, talking about T-cell...about 90-95% of T-cell die during maturation and selection...how unefficient our thymuses are??? In order to make CD4+ and CD8+ and eliminating those who have CD4- and CD8-.....
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?
A: They have all the solutions.

PS: I think Dr.Stein knows where the spleen is... Or does she? :twisted:

Its not located in the lymphnodes, its located a bit higher then the abdomin. Sufffice it to say under your upper left rib cage.

Heres a diagram of what a real one looks like.

Edit: However after further research, it seems my texts
diagram has it listed as the lymphocyte activation: and has a lymph node attached to it.
