(T8, CD8). Subset of T cells that halt antibody production and other immune responses. See also Antibodies; T Cells.
Lymphocytes controlled by the thymus gland, which suppresses the immune response.
T cells that slow down and stop the immune response of B cells and other T cells. Immune system cells that shut off the antibody production when an infection is under control.
These cells inhibit the activation phase of the immune response by suppressing the response of B cells (antibody producing cells) or of other T cells (killer T cells, helper T cells) to an antigen resulting in tolerance for the antigen by the host.
A subset of T cells that turn off antibody production and other immune responses.
See Regulatory T cells
T cells that keep the response to foreign substances in the body in check.
Lymphocytes that inhibit B cell activation and the secretion of antibodies by plasma cells.
