T cell

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

T cells are lymphocytes that play an important role in cell-mediated immunity. They are distinguished from other lymphocyte subsets such as B cells and natural killer cells by the T-cell receptor on the cell surface. They mature in the thymus.
