EXPERT ANSWER

Dear Student,

All lymphocytes originate from a common lymphoid progenitor before differentiating into their distinct lymphocyte types.

Lymphocyte are differentiated into two types: B- cells and T- cells:

B- cells mature into B lymphocytes in the bone marrow

T-cells migrate to and mature in a distinct organ, called the thymus.

Hope you have got the answer.

Cheers !!
