Same as T cell.
thymus-dependent lymphocyte that matures in the thymus; important in cell-mediated immunity and helping B cells.
(T Cells) A white blood cell that recognises foreign proteins (e.g. bacteria, transplanted tissue) and mobilises other cells to destroy the invading organism or foreign tissue. HIV infects certain T lymphocytes (CD4 lymphocytes), thereby causing immunodeficiency.
Type of lymphocyte responsible for cell-mediated immunity; includes both cytotoxic T cells and helper T cells.
Cell of the immune system that plays a key role in immune responses and targeted cell killing; also known as a T-cell.
a small lymphocyte developed in the thymus; it orchestrates the immune system's response to infected or malignant cells
The cell type that mediates cell mediated immune responses in the adaptive immune system. T lymphocytes mature in the thymus, circulate in the blood, populate secondary lymphoid tissues, and are recruited to peripheral sites of antigen exposure. They express antigen receptors (TCRs) that recognize peptide fragments of foreign proteins bind to self MHC molecules. Functional subsets of T Lymphocytes include CD4+ helper T cells and CD8 +CTLs (1). In the CNS, T lymphocytes play major roles in neuroinflammatory reactions during infection (e.g. encephalitis and meningitis), autoimmune disease (e.g. multiple sclerosis) and injury.
see T cell
A specific type of white blood cell that starts an immune response or actively works to attack and destroy foreign substances (antigens). Psoriasis is often considered a "T-cell–mediated" disease because T cells appear to be over-activated.
A lymphocyte that passes through the thymus before migrating to tissues. The T lymphocyte, also called a T cell, is responsible for cell-mediated immunity.
One type of white blood cell that attacks virus-infected cells, foreign cells, and cancer cells. T lymphocytes also produce a number of substances that regulate the immune response. Also called T cell.
Animal cell which possesses specific cell surface receptors through which it binds to foreign substances or organisms, or those which it identifies as foreign, and which initiates immune responses RT B lymphocyte, immune response, lymphocyte
white blood cell that destroys abnormal cells or interacts with B-lymphocytes
A type of immune cell produced by the thymus gland.
