The extracts obtained from chicken bursas and human tonsils, both of which are known to contain predominantly B lymphocyte precursor cells, were examined for the presence of putative B cell specific terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (B-TdT). Neither of the two types of tissue extracts revealed the presence of specific TdT, although the presence of DNA polymerase α, β, and γ could be easily demonstrated.
