T-Cell

Definition of T-Cell:

T cells are lymphocytes that are produced in the bone marrow and mature in the thymus.  T cells are responsible for mediating the second branch of the immune system called "cellular immune response." T cells can live for months to years.  This lymphocyte population is defined by the presence of a rearranged T-cell receptor.
