Lectin staining pattern in Peyer's patches of porcine ileum was studied using twenty one biotinylated-labeled lectins as cell markers which were visualized with avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex method (ABC). WGA appears to be a selective marker for tingible body macrophages in the porcine germinal centers. ConA may be a positive marker for the lymphoid tissues, whereas 9 lectins (DBA, SBA, SJA, s-WGA, PNA, ECL, UEA-I, PHA-E, and PHA-L) may be negative markers for the lymphoid tissues in all
