T cell, T lymphocyte(noun)
a small lymphocyte developed in the thymus; it orchestrates the immune system's response to infected or malignant cells
A lymphocyte, from the thymus, that can recognise specific antigens and can activate or deactivate other immune cells.
T cells or T lymphocytes are a type of lymphocytes that play a central role in cell-mediated immunity. They can be distinguished from other lymphocytes, such as B cells and natural killer cells, by the presence of a T-cell receptor on the cell surface. They do not have antigen-presenting properties. They are called T cells because they mature in the thymus. There are several subsets of T cells, each with a distinct function.
