Germinal center (GC) reaction in the spleen after acute viral infection. After recognition of viral antigens, T cells (in blue) migrate from the T cell zone into the follicle where they interact with B cells (in purple). The T cells 'help' B cells, instructing the formation of GCs (in green) in which virus-specific B cells undergo selection, class switching and somatic hypermutation to secrete anti-viral antibodies to clear the infection.
