Any of a class of lymphocytes that, when activated by a specific antigen and usually also by helper T cells, proliferate and differentiate into antibody-secreting plasma cells or memory cells. In mammals, B cells mature in the bone marrow.
An immune response produced when T cells, especially cytotoxic T cells, that are sensitized to foreign antigens attack and lyse target cells. In addition to direct cytotoxicity, T cells can stimulate the production of lymphokines that activate macrophages. Cell-mediated immune responses are important in defense against pathogens, autoimmune diseases, some acquired allergies, and other immune reactions.
