Follicular helper T cells and follicular regulatory T cells have different kinetic profiles. C57BL/6 mice were immunised intraperitoneally with sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and the numbers of splenic follicular helper T (Tfh) cells and follicular regulatory T (Tfr) cells were assessed by flow cytometry at different time points. During the germinal centre response, Tfh cells peak slightly earlier compared with Tfr cells. Tfh cell numbers peak around days 7 to 11 whereas the highest number of Tfr cells can be observed from days 11 to 17.
