Functions of lymphocytes?

  • Lymphocytes have a <protective role>. Particular function depends on the type of lymphocytes. T cells are involved in cell-mediated immunity whereas B cells are primarily responsible for humoral immunity (relating to antibodies).
    Protective functions are done through: lysis of virually infected cells or tumor cells, realease of cytokines and growth factors to stimulate otherimmune cells, immunoregulation and cytotoxicity, destruction of virally infected cells, secretion of antibodies

  • Answer: Thymus gland is where they travel
  • Answer: B lymphocytes develop in the bone marrow. They then chill out in the blood until they meet an antigen that they are encoded and they become activated. However they need to be checked by another immune cell before to present auto-antigen. Once activated they then go to the spleen.
  • Answer: Both are T and B lymphocytes are produced in bone marrow, but B lymphocytes mature in bone marrow and are part of the humoral response, while T lymphocytes mature in the thymus gland and are part of the cell mediated response.
  • Answer: secrete antibodies into blood and lymph fluids
  • Answer: Task processes focus on activities that help complete a certaintask, like producing a widget. Process functions are broader andinclude task functions.
  • Answer: You have low white blood cells or low lymph cells, both of which are a crucial part of your immune system
  • Answer: T cells (Thymus cells) and B cells (bone cells).

    The function of T cells and B cells is to recognize specific "non-self" antigens, during a process known as antigen presentation. Once they have identified an invader, the cells generate specific responses that are tailored to maximally eliminate specific pathogens or pathogen infected cells. B cells respond to pathogens by producing large quantities of antibodies which then neutralize foreign objects like bacteria and viruses. In response to pathogens some T cells, called T helper cells, produce cytokines that direct the immune response while other T cells, called cytotoxic T cells, produce toxic granules that contain powerful enzymes which induce the death of pathogen infected cells.

    Following activation, B cells and T cells leave a lasting legacy of the antigens they have encountered, in the form of memory cells. Throughout the lifetime of an animal these memory cells will "remember" each specific pathogen encountered, and are able to mount a strong and rapid response if the pathogen is detected again.
  • Answer: lymphocytes help provide a specific response to attack the invading organisms, make antibodies and help protect the body against diseases and fight infections

  • Answer: B-lymphocytes are a type of white blood cell of the immune system that synthesize antibodies to protect the organism from foreign/non-self antigens.
  • Answer: B cells T cells or NK cells
  • Answer: lymphocytes are white blood cells.
    these are of two types, B lymphocyte and T Lymphocyte
    there basic role are in immune system.
  • Answer: No. Macrophages and lymphocytes are different types of leukocytes (WBCs).
