T cells are so named as they differentiate in the thymus. They are long lived and are involved in cell mediated immunity. They represent 60-80% of the circulating lymphocytes and all express the markers CD2, CD3 and CD7 as well as having T cell receptors (TCR). Each T cell has 30,000 TCRs each of which is identical and recognises antigens and major histocompatability complex (MHC) II.

The thymus has a key role in the maturation of prothymocytes into mature T cells. In juvenile animals the thymus produces significant numbers of new T lymphocytes but as the animal matures this production decreases and T cell population is maintained by division of mature T cells.
