Name the cells that are released from the thymus gland. Mention how they help in immunity?

Dear student,                                                                                                                                                                      
Please find below the solution to the asked query    

T–cells migrate to the thymus and develop.They are responsible for cellular immunity. T- cells have special receptors on their cell surfaces called T- cell receptors which are absent in B – cells. T – cells can be differentiated according to their functions into three types – killer T – cells (attack directly), helper T – cells (stimulate B – cells) and suppressor T- cells (suppress immune system).
