Line 1: Line 1:
 +T lymphocytes ([[T cell]]s) are produced in the [[thymus]] gland. There, they learn how to distinguish self from nonself. Only the T [[lymphocytes]] that tolerate the self-identification [[molecule]]s are allowed to mature and leave the thymus. Without this training process, T lymphocytes could attack the body's [[cell]]s and [[tissue]]s.
