    T細胞 Background

    T cell, also known as T lymphocyte, is a type of white blood cell that is of key importance to the immune system and is at the core of adaptive immunity. The abbreviation “T”, in T cell, stands for thymus, the organ in which T cells mature. T cells express special receptors on their surfaces that are not expressed by other lymphocyte types, and thus they can be distinguished from B cells and natural killer (NK) cells. T cell receptors are responsible for T cell antigen recognition bound to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules.

    Immature T cells (termed T-stem cells) migrate to the thymus gland in the neck, where they mature and differentiate into various types of mature T cells. Several types of T cells have been defined based on their specific function, including helper T cells, cytotoxic T cells, regulatory T cells, memory T cells and gamma delta (γδ) T cells. T cells play a central role in cell-mediated immunity. And they can produce substances called cytokines that further stimulated the immune responses including production of antibodies.
