  • The Encyclopaedia Britannica states that lymphocytes are primarily categorized into B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes, also called B cells and T cells. (reference.com)
  • Lymphocytes generally last for a short time, with an average life span ranging from a week to a few months, although some cells live for years and form a group of long-lived T and B cells, according to the Encyclopaedia Britannica. (reference.com)
  • Lymphocytes are produced by the same stem cells that produce red blood cells. (reference.com)

  • Clinically, this is similar to severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), in which lymphocyte precursor cells are improperly formed. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a notable contrast, however, bare lymphocyte syndrome does not result in decreased B- and T-cell counts, as the development of these cells is not impaired. (wikipedia.org)
  • During development in primary lymphoid organs, lymphocytes depend on a series of signals to pass through the checkpoints necessary to generate mature cells. (hindawi.com)
