Immune Cells

Overview
  • All cells in the body can participate in a successful response to infectious agents and so the categorization of certain cells as "Immune Cells" is ultimately arbitrary. Immune Cells are traditionally considered to be those within a family of "White Cells" which differentiate from Hematopoietic Stem Cells within the bone marrow. These "White Cells", also known collectively as '"leukocytes", are believed to be the primary effectors of a successful immune response and are responsible for the actual killing of pathogens and pathogen-infected host cells. Below we have employed a fairly non-traditional schema to sub-categorize immune cells which will likely not be found elsewhere.
