T-cell population, which is not yet educated by antigen-dependent mechanism or never encounter any antigens yet. They can be found in their "home" both bone marrow or thymus. Once they "meet" antigen, they will be activated, proliferated and generating immun response.

Dr Stein,

Oh my, that's one mean looking saw you have there. Does it come with a holster? Always looking to update my S&M collection. Got a new harness the other day, seems to have alot of places to hold various toys. :D

The T-cells, can you take me back to the begining. Where exactly did these T-cells originate from?

All blood corpuscles originate from bone marrow. Lymphocytes which fated to be T-cells will move to thymus for maturation and education. Lymphocytes which still stay in bone marrow fated to be B-cells ;)

About your 1st peragraph... What do you mean? I'm not into adult S&M but the one with Metallica :lol: The guy in my sig is the real Dr.Stein, my husband, with puffy eyes and stinky smell :lol:

Here is his song:
"Dr. Stein grows funny creatures
Let's them run into the night
They become great rock musicians
And their time is right!"

:D
