Key Features

* Discusses new discoveries, approaches, and ideas in T cell immunity
* Contributions from leading scholars and industry experts
* Reference guide for researchers involved in molecular biology and related fields

Description

T cells belong to a group of white blood cells called lymphocytes and play a large role in the immune response. An increased understanding of T cell immunity will provide new insights into the etiology of human autoimmune disease such as diabetes.

This volume reviews the latest developments and discusses the evolution of T cell immunity, thymic requirements, and how to prevent T cell-dependent autoimmunity.

Readership

Researchers, professors and graduate students in immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, biotechnology, and medicine.

Quotes and reviews

PRAISE FOR THE SERIES:
"Full of interest not only for the molecular biologist--for whom the numerous references will be invaluable--but will also appeal to a much wider circle of biologists, and in fact to all those who are concerned with the living cell."--British Medical Journal
