lym·pho·cyte

(lĭm′fə-sīt′)
Any of various white blood cells that function in the body's immune system by recognizing and deactivating specific foreign substances called antigens. Certain lymphocytes (called B cells) act by stimulating the production of antibodies. Others (T cells) contain receptors on their cell surfaces that are capable of recognizing and binding to specific antigens.
