WHAT DOES THYMOCYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Thymocyte

Thymocytes are hematopoietic progenitor cells present in the thymus. Thymopoiesis is the process in the thymus by which thymocytes differentiate into mature T lymphocytes. The primary function of thymocytes is the generation of T lymphocytes. The thymus provides an inductive environment, which allows for the development and selection of physiologically useful T cells. The processes of beta-selection, positive selection, and negative selection shape the population thymocytes into a peripheral pool of T cells that are able to respond to foreign pathogens and are immunologically tolerant towards self antigens.

Definition of thymocyte in the English dictionary

The definition of thymocyte in the dictionary is a lymphocyte found in the thymus.
