The function of T cells is to perform a variety of immune responses in the body, according to National Multiple Sclerosis Society. T cells are one of two types of white blood cells that help immune function.
B cells work in a way similar to T cells, by identifying and fighting specific invading pathogens. B cells produce pathogen-specific antibodies that bind to special B cell receptors on the target antigens' membranes.
The main function of the cell body of a neuron is to integrate synaptic information and transmit this information to other cells via the axon. The cell body also completes a variety of biochemical processes to keep the neuron functioning properly.
As the basic living part of a plant, the plant cell is involved in many physiological and structural activities. They range from synthesis of proteins and energy to maintaining structural integrity and tautness.
A cell is the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism. It is made up of a cell wall, a cell membrane, a nucleus and cytoplasm, among other elements.
The cell wall gives cells shape, enables plant growth, prevents bursting from water pressure, keeps out water and pathogens, stores carbohydrates and sends signals to cells. The flexible cell wall surrounds plant cell membranes.
The main function of white blood cells is to help protect the human body from infection as well as other foreign materials. White blood cells are also known as leukocytes, and they develop in bone marrow from stem cells.
